Shift riot cases out of Gujarat, says Congress

Gandhinagar: Senior Gujarat police officer Rahul Sharma Thursday moved the state high court after being hauled up for passing on, without government permission, information to a panel probing the 2002 Gujarat riots.

The proposed action against him was cleared at the highest level in the state, sources said here.

Sharma was posted as the district superintendent of police in Bhavnagar during the riots. His prompt action ensured that the district and town remained unscathed. He was immediately transferred thereafter to the police control room in Ahmedabad.

In May 2002, he was ordered to assist the investigations into the Naroda Patia massacre case in Ahmedabad wherein he collected the call data for all key numbers during the period of rioting.

He was subsequently transferred.

This data, in hindsight, has proved to be damning evidence of the call traffic between key elements who led the riots, including political leaders and those in important positions in the state government as well as the police.

Sharma handed over copies of CDs of the call records to the Nanavati-Mehta judicial inquiry commission probing the 2002 Godhra train carnage and the riots that followed it when he was summoned to depose before it.
