Ahmedabad, Sep 4 (PTI): The Gujarat government on Wednesday said it has not accepted the resignation of fake encounter cases accused senior police officer D G Vanzara, 59, who quit after indicting Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
”The resignation tendered by D G Vanzara has not been accepted,” Additional Chief Secretary (Home) S K Nanda told PTI on Wednesday.
He, however, didn't give any specific reasons behind doing so.
Vanzara, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), suspended and behind the bars in a string of fake encounter cases, had resigned from the service accusing the Modi government of having failed to protect the jailed police officers who fought against “Pakistan-inspired terrorism”.
An officer of Indian Police Service, 1987 batch, considered close to Modi, said in his resignation letter, dated September 1, that police officers involved in alleged fake encounters “simply implemented the conscious policy” of the government whose place “should either be in Taloja central prison at Navi Mumbai or in Sabarmati Central Prison at Ahmedabad.”
The controversial cop has accused the state government, particularly former Minister of State for Home Amit Shah, of betraying him and 32 other officers who are in jail in connection with encounter cases being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation .
