TNN JULY 5, 2011, 12.48AM IST

AHMEDABAD: After government counsel S B Vakil told mediapersons that the state intelligence bureau (IB) records related to 2002 riots were destroyed at the end of 2007, the civil rights organization Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM) on Monday requested the Godhra commission to direct the state government to file an affidavit in this regard.

Citing the contradictory statements issued by the state government about existence of riot-related records, JSM urged the Nanavati-Mehta commission to ask the state home secretary on affidavit which data were destroyed. The government should be asked to reveal the name of officer, who ordered for destruction of records, the application said.

The commission has also been requested to ask the government to produce or permit the inspection of all the vehicle movement registers of the vehicles of then DGP, Ahmedabad police commissioner, and IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt from February 27 to May 31.
