Ahmedabad, 3 September : In a series of sensational disclosures, Gujarat IPS officer D G Vanzara, accused in several fake encounter cases, has alleged that chief minister Narendra Modi has made use of police officers but abandoned them later on.
Mr Vanzara, an accused in the Sohrabuddin, Tulsi Prajapati and Ishrat Jahan encounter cases in the one decade, has tendered his resignation from the Indian Police Service and blamed the Modi administration for doing little to protect the policemen who risked their lives ‘to save Gujarat from terrorists’.
In his resignation letter addressed to the Additional Chief Secretary (Home), Vanzara said that while Mr Modi had made all the efforts to save former Minister of State for Home Amit Shah, “loyal soldiers of this government” have been made to suffer in jails.
Mr Vanzara along with half a dozen IPS officers and nearly two dozen policemen of other ranks are currently in different jails of Gujarat and Mumbai for their involvements in separate fake encounters, apparently to foil terrorists’ plans to eliminate Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
The IPS officer, who is under suspension ever since his arrest in April 2007, alleged in his nine-page letter that the Modi government is not interested in protecting the ‘patriotic’ policemen in order to ‘save its own skin’ and ‘gain political benefits’. Mr Vanzara said the encounters were done “in compliance of the policy of this government.” SNS
