Sweta confronts second raid

Ahmedabad: Police today came for the second time to raid arrested IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt`s house here, but had to return when his wife confronted them and asked them to produce a fresh search warrant.

Bhatt`s residence was raided yesterday after he was arrested on a complaint filed by a Police Constable.

"Today around 30 to 35 police officers came once again to raid our house. But today, I confronted them and asked them to produce a search warrant. They were able to just produce yesterday`s warrant as they did not possess a fresh search warrant," Bhatt`s wife Shweta told here.

"I told them that to search our house based on yesterday`s warrant amounted to harassment. They cannot search our house twice on the basis of one warrant," she maintained.

"After that they left our house," Shweta further said.

"The police are trying to harass us as my husband has spoken the truth," Shweta stated.

Following the arrest of Bhatt, who has accused Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots, police conducted a raid at his residence in Memnagar area to "check for evidence" related to the complaint.
