Another session’s court judge will hear the bail plea of Bhatt, who has accused the Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi of complicity in 2002 riots.
After his arrest, Ahmedabad police had sought 7 days remand although the magistrate had rejused it and sent Bhatt to judicial custody. Then, the police had challenged the magistrate order before the session court.
In the meantime, Bhatt had filed a appeal seeking bail on the ground that his arrest was politically motivated and KD Pant, a constable who compalined against him, was not consistent and had changed his statements several times.
Bhatt was arrested in connection with an FIR filed by Pant for supposedly threatening him and making him symbol a false affidavit with regard to a meeting called by Modi on February 27, 2002, hours after the Godhra train carnage.
Meanwhile, Bhatt’s wife Shweta has written to union home minister P Chidamabaram twice seeking his interference for providing security to her husband and her family and how the police had ill pleasure Bhatt in police lock up room.
