The Supreme Court on Friday refused to grant bail to former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, stating that the allegations against him were of serious nature and that it would not be right to give him bail at this stage.

Bhatt then withdrew his plea. The former IPS officer had withdrawn his petition in a case on Thursday also.

A case was filed against Bhatt after Advocate Sumer Singh Rajpurohit accused Bhatt of framing him in a narcotics case by allegedly planting 1.5 kg opium at Hotel Lajwanti in Palanpur. Bhatt was the Superintendent of Police of Banasantha district in 1996, when the incident took place.

The lawyer gave a statement on October 17, 1996, after which nine people, including Bhatt, were charged under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.

A charge sheet was filed against Bhatt in March 1997 before the special court of Jodhpur.

On September 5, 2018, Bhatt, along with seven others attached with Banaskantha Police, was detained by Gujarat CID for questioning.
