SIT report shall be celebrated by extremists: Rtd-DGP RB Sreekumar

RB Sreekumar rtd DGP Ahmadabad: Former DGP R B Sreekumar IPS (Retd) has asked the SIT to assess the vast magnitude of evidence that he had submitted before them relating to 2002 genocide and has asked them to arrange for recording his statements which has not been recorded till today.

According to him the closure report that exonerates the Chief Minister Narendra Modi and 62 others only confirms his view that the SIT had a pro-Modi trend.The report which is unfortunate shall be celebrated by Hindu and Muslim extremists, he added.

He had provided a lot of evidence on the background, course and aftermath of 2002 communal holocaust. Though he had submitted a detailed statement with relevant information on major carnage cases investigated by SIT and about the culpable role played by Khurseed Ahmed IPS the SIT has refrained from calling him to record his statement till today. Copies of the four affidavits submitted by Mr Sreekumar before the Nanavathi Commission were submitted before the SIT which contained copious and prolific material about guilty role of the CM.

The first affidavit dated 15.07.2002 contained data on alert notices, actionable preventive intelligence and remedial measures suggested to the Government by the State Intelligence Branch(SIB). The second affidavit dated 06.10.2004 had evidence related to the role of CM and others in riots and failure of the Government to act on the SIB intelligence reports.

Third Affidavit, dated 09.04.2005 covered the bias of the Government against Mr Sreekumar. According to him he was denied promotion as he refused to comply with the illegal verbal orders of the CM and Highjer officers. They had instructed him to speak in favour of the government before the Nanavathi Commission on 31.08.2004. The Fourth Affidavit dated 27-10-2005 contained the CM’s instructions given to government officials where in he had asked them to give a free play to Hindu revengefulness.

Mr Sreekumar had also sent a suggestion letter asking the SIT to record the statement of P. G. J. Nampoothiri, former DGP, Gujarat who has revealed significant information about the riot in his autobiography published in Malayalam.

The complete copy of Mr RB Sreekumar’s letter to the SIT after it submitted it closure report before the court has been given below

To,

Dr. R. K. Raghavan, IPS Retd.,

Chairman, SIT

Sub:Request for getting my  statement recorded u/s 164 (1) Cr.P.C.

Respected Sir,

Today (09.02.2012) many riot victim survivors met me and expressed their severe shock and frustration over the Special Investigation Team (SIT) filing a closure report to the Court, exonerating the Chief Minister Narendra Modi and 62 others from culpability for their 2002 anti-minority genocide.  In fact, I had seen the alleged pro-Modi trend of SIT since 2009 June and had submitted to you numerous suggestion reports, expecting mid-course correction measures from SIT. The act of submission of the closure report, ignoring the suggestions from the riot affected by SIT, had prompted me to write the following for your kind urgent attention and expeditious action.

2.  As a conscious citizen, vigilant about the core values of the Constitution of India, particularly, the letter, spirit and thrust of Art. 51(A) – Fundamental Duties – I have provided a lot of evidence on the background, course and aftermath of 2002 communal holocaust, which stamped an inerasable infamy on the image and heritage of Indian Nation; and health, vibrancy, quality and competence of justice delivery system in our motherland.

3.  Data on major set of evidence submitted by me to SIT are narrated below.

A.    On 9th May 2008 I met you and Shri Satpathy, Member SIT, in your Office at Gandhinagar and submitted my detailed statement (6 pages) with relevant information on major carnage cases investigated by SIT, especially inputs on the culpable role by Shri Khurseed Ahmed, IPS (Guj. 1977), the then Commandant of the SRPF Group. II, in Saijpur, Bogha, Nr. Naroda Patia.  But till today I was not called by SIT to record my statement u/s 161/162 Cr.P.C.. Along with this statement I had submitted copies of my four affidavits to the Justice Nanavati Commission inquiring into the riots.  These affidavits contained copious and prolific material about guilty role of the CM Narendra Modi and others in the State Administration for riots and subsequent subversion of the Criminal Justice System (CJS).

i.    The First Affidavit, dated 15.07.2002 with the statement of my cross examination on 31.08.2004 (232 pages) by the Nanavati Commission (herein after will be referred to as the Commission).  It contained data on  alert notices, actionable preventive intelligence and remedial measures suggested to the Government by the State Intelligence Branch(SIB).

ii.   The Second Affidavit, Dated 06.10.2004 (33 Pages)-with evidence relevant to expanded terms of reference to the Commission, on the role of CM and others in riots, failure of the Government to act on the SIB intelligence reports etc..

iii.  The Third Affidavit, Dated 09.04.2005 (128 pages)-covering bias of the Government against me resulting in denial of promotion to me (February 2005) on account of my refusal to comply with the illegal verbal orders of the CM and other higher officers, not obeying the illegal instruction for  speaking in favour of the Government before the Commission on 31-08-2004, verbatim of the communally inciting speech of the CM, the unlawful verbal directives by two Home Department Officials, copy of my Register recording the illegal verbal directives from higher authorities etc..

iv.  The Fourth Affidavit date 27-10-2005(86 pages)-on truth behind nine unwarranted charges for dismissal from service on me by the Modi Government, information on DGP, Shri K Chakravarti revealing about the CM’s instructions to give a free play to Hindu revengefulness, blamable role of the Central IB Joint Director Shri Rajendra Kumar, etc..

B. Shri V.V. Chaudhary, Supt. of Police, SIB Gujarat State recorded my detailed statement(48 pages) in July 2009 in presence of SIT officers Shri. Paramvir Singh and Shri A.K. Malhotra, relating to the Mrs. Jafri Complaint.

C.    I submitted a note to SIT the note (33 pages), “Suggestion to SIT” dated 3rd August, 2009 proposing further action on the probe relating to FIR by Mrs. Jafri against CM Modi and others. The note contains 60 points of suggestions and feedback from the riot victim survivors about SIT investigation so far.

D.    A suggestion letter dated 6th November, 2009 to record the statement of Shri P. G. J. Nampoothiri, former DGP, Gujarat, as he revealed many important information about the riot in his autobiography written in Malayalam language.

E.    Knowing that SIT is reportedly accepting the State Govt.’s version about my evidence in my 4 affidavits, a letter captioned, “Rejoinder to malicious campaigns to marginalize my evidence to the Justice Nanavati Commission and SIT” dated 30th March, 2010 (16 pages) was submitted to SIT.

F.    A second suggestion letter dated 9th April, 2010 (5 pages) was submitted to SIT, captioned “Hitherto untapped and unexplored information on witnesses to Godhra Train fire incident on 27-2-2002”. This was a request for recording statements of U.P. Police and agents of IB, who had seen the Godhra Train fire incident on 27th February, 2002. (This formed by Fifth Affidavit dated 3rd May, 2010 to the Commission)

G.    A third suggestion letter (24 pages) captioned “Suggestion to SIT”, stressing upon the need for recording statements of relevant officers from Central Para Military Forces and Army, who assisted Gujarat Police in 2002 riots and attachments of their relevant documents, was submitted to you. (This formed by Sixth Affidavit to the Commission)

H.    In the light of Media reports about SIT marginalizing my evidence, I submitted a letter (33 pages) to SIT captioned “An appeal to objectively appreciate and acknowledge the evidential merit of my six affidavits to the Judicial Commission probing into the 2002 Gujarat communal riots”. In this I included the excerpts from your article about me, praising me in laudable terms on my evidence against the Modi Govt. (Front line magazine, dated 6th May, 2005)

I.     I submitted copy of my Eighth Affidavit (dated 15th September, 2011) (63 Pages) in which I presented the details of misuse of Govt. funds to the tune of Rs. 10 lacs by the CM to undermine the judicial process of Ms. Mallika Sarabhai’s writ petition in the Apex court. This was submitted on specific orders from the Commission.

J.     I submitted copy of my Nineth Affidavit to SIT (20 pages) (dated 12th January, 2012) regarding interaction between me and Mr. Ashok Narayanan, the then Addl. Chief Secretary, Home Department, about his admission that he had shown all my intelligence reports suggesting remedial measures to remove bias of the Administration against the Muslims, to the CM Modi, but CM did not act on it.

K.    A copy of my open letter captioned “An appeal to the real sovereigns of India dated 2nd February, 2002 (10 pages) to SIT on the same date.

4.  In my view, your act of exonerating Shri Narendra Modi and his collaboraters in the anti minority carnage will be celebrated by all enemies of our motherland, particularly Hindu and Muslim extremists. Hindu radicals and the Sangh Parivar will feel that they can continue to enjoy total impunity and immunity from legal action and accountability for their crimes during riots, while the Muslim terrorists and Jehadis can redouble their false propaganda about the so-called prejudice of the Indian Administration against the Muslims, who are allegedly denied justice in Gujarat riots cases. Consequently increasing number of misguided Muslim youth will come under the grip of internationally organized Muslim terrorists.

5.  I appeal once again to you to assess the vast magnitude of my evidence, in its various dimensions relating to 2002 anti minority genocide in Gujarat, in riot perspective.

6.  I further request you to arrange for recording the whole cluster of my evidence and assortment of inputs on riots provided by me to SIT, under section 164(1) of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, for ensuring their sound legal foundations, higher degree of credibility, acceptability and appreciability.

Praying for expeditious actions,

Yours faithfully,

 (R. B. Sreekumar)
