In her letter, Bhatt's wife Shweta reportedly detailed how her husband is being allegedly targeted by the state government and urged the Centre to ensure his safety.
Earlier, Sweta had written a letter to Gujarat DGP (Director General of Police) and Ahmedabad Commissioner citing that there is a threat to her husband's life. She also said in the letter that she does not trust the Gujarat Police.
Sanjeev Bhatt had earlier claimed that he had other crucial evidence against the higher-ups involved in the Godhra riots but was not revealing the same since he was in custody. Bhatt had earlier come into the limelight after his damning revelations that cited Modi's complicity in the 2002 post-Godhra riots.
Bhatt was arrested following an FIR filed against him by a police constable that alleged Bhatt to have pressurized and threatened the constable to sign a false affidavit regarding a high-level meeting called by Modi on Feb 27, 2002.
A session court in Gujarat on Monday, Oct 3 sent a notice to the state government and state Director General of Police after admitting the bail plea of Bhatt.
