Vanzara's allegations should be probed: Mayawati

New Delhi: Demanding a high-level probe into the charges levelled by IPS officer D G Vanzara against the Gujarat government, BSP today said the matter should also be discussed in both Houses of Parliament. "Our party's opinion is that it (Vanzara allegations) should be discussed in both Houses. At the same time there should be a high-level inquiry into it, because it is a serious issue," BSP chief Mayawati told reporters outside
Parliament.

In his 10-page resignation letter, Vanzara, who is lodged in Sabarmati Central Jail in connection with a string of alleged fake encounter cases, had said the accused officers and men "simply implemented the conscious policy" of the state government. Vanzara accused the state government, particularly former Minister of State for Home Amit Shah of betraying him and 32 other officers, in jail in encounter killing cases.

Mayawati said, "If a proper inquiry is held, then many persons at higher level will come under the shadow of the probe." The probe will be a lesson for bureaucracy and it will try to perform its duty with cautious approach and with responsibility, she said. Asked whether the probe should be carried out by CBI or any other agency, the BSP supremo said, "If all other parties want CBI probe, then I think CBI should better do it."

On the issue of reducing fuel bill, she said government should take some concrete steps for curbing fuel expenditure.
