Narendra Modi Gandhinagar, Aug 17 (IANS) A sessions court in Gujarat’s Jamnagar town has issued a bailable arrest warrant against whistleblower Indian Police Service officer Sanjiv Bhatt in a 1990 case related to a man’s death due to alleged police beating, a lawyer said.

The warrant was issued Tuesday.

The state government had suspended Bhatt from service earlier this month. He had shot into the limelight when he filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court claiming he was present at a meeting called by Chief Minister Narendra Modi at his residence on the night after the 2002 Godhra train carnage, where the signal for action against Muslims was allegedly given.
