Sacked Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt's wife says husband's bail plea 'shamelessly convoluted to appease certain political personalities'

Former Gujarat police officer Sanjiv Bhatt's wife, in a Facebook post, has alleged that her husband "has been maliciously penalised under the façade of blatant and shameless judicial delays", and been kept in the jail for over 112 days now. Arrested in September for allegedly framing a lawyer in a narcotics case 22 years ago, a Gujarat court rejected his bail plea earlier this month. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has also dismissed a petition by a former judge of the Gujarat High Court who faced charges of conspiring with Bhatt in the 22-year-old drugs case.

Posting from Bhatt's social media accounts his wife Shweta Sanjiv Bhatt slammed the judiciary and said that "something as simple as a bail" plea has been "shamelessly convoluted" to "appease certain political personalities."

"While murderers are expediently acquitted, an innocent man is denied a simple bail hearing for political vendetta!"

Today, Christmas, marks the 112th day since Sanjiv was taken away from home. Since September, he has been maliciously penalised under the façade of blatant and shameless judicial delays. Something as simple as a bail hearing has been, for three and a half months, shamelessly convoluted and prolonged to appease certain political personalities. While murderers are expediently acquitted, an innocent man is denied a simple bail hearing for political vendetta!
Is such a delay, fair? lawful? Justifiable?
In a time when ignorance, superstition, greed, hatred and violence prevailed, Jesus was born as a symbol of divinity, truth and hope. The times we are living in today are no different from those, and we can only hope that the new year brings with it hope for justice and the triumph of good over evil.
We have moved the High Court of Gujarat, and the hearing has been scheduled for the 8th of January 2019.
I implore you all to pray along with me for Sanjiv, and for truth & justice to be triumphant over evil.

Merry Christmas to all and God bless.
