"The action has been taken against Bhatt as he has misused his position by forcefully getting a policeman to prepare an affidavit. Only the due process of law is being followed. We do not understand where Modi is involved in this," BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.
Bhatt was arrested last Friday on an FIR filed by constable K D Pant. The DIG has accused Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots in Gujarat. BJP described the attacks against Modi as a "sad state of affairs". "If I may say lightly, is it fashionable to talk anti-Modi?" Sitharaman said, adding that in such a scenario law of the land can never take full play.
