New Delhi, Jun 28: The Ahmedabad Crime Branch on Saturday arrested the 75 year old former Gujarat Director General of Police from his home in Gandhinagar on charges of forgery and criminal conspiracy.
A day before the arrest, the Supreme Court had questioned his role in the petition against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Gujarat riots when he was chief minister. The court said the allegations of state’s involvement in the 2002 Gujarat massacres were made with an ulterior motive.
While he has been hailed as an honest officer by his supporters, the probe into the ISRO case tells a different picture. In the case has been accused of maligning aerospace engineer Nambi Narayanan. He is accused of fabricating evidence to settle a personal vendetta.
