A clear case of personal vendetta by fascist forces: Sanjiv Bhatt's wife on his arrest in 22-year-old case

Shweta Bhatt, wife former Gujarat top-cop Sanjiv Bhatt, who was recently arrested in a 22-year-old case, in a statement has said that the Gujarat government action is a clear example where the “police force and judiciary are used to achieve personal vendetta”, and where “journalists are left to choose between professional integrity and their wellbeing.”
Even as thanking supporters for “unwavering and unconditional support for Sanjiv”, Shweta said, “The last few days witnessed the level at which our government can fall to muzzle a voice of dissent”, adding, “This is an uphill battle against fascist forces.” 
Bhatt is known to have resigned from the IPS after differences with then chief minister Narendra Modi. He created a flutter for his affidavit before the Supreme Court that Modi instructed top people in Gujarat to “let Hindus vent their anger against Muslims following the Sabarmati Express train-burning incident in Godhra on February 27, 2002”.
Bhatt was arrested on September 5, for “falsely” implicating a Rajasthan-based lawyer Surmersingh Rajpurohit, on charges of possessing around a kilogram of drugs in 1996, when he was the superintendent of police in Banaskantha.
