Letter No. RBS/Riots/UP-111/2012 dated 27-03-2012

Sub:- To bring out truth on Godhra train fire incident on 27-02-2002 known to UP police

Respected Sir,

I belong to 1971 batch of IPS officers from Gujarat cadre. I had retired from service on 28-02-2002 as Director General of Police, Gujarat state.

2. I had submitted nine Affidavits (660 pages) to the Justice Nanavati Commission, probing into  the anti-minority genocide in Gujarat in 2002, uncovering the culpable role of the Chief Minister Shri. Narendra Modi and others in the riots and subversion of Criminal Justice System (CJS) to deny and delay justice to the riot victim survivors.

3. Though I belong to Kerala state, since retirement, I stay in Gandhinagar and extend help and assistance to the riot affected, particularly in their cases as a lawyer.

4. In April/ May 2010, I received reliable information about the UP State Government in February 2002, deploying a few UP police officers to keep watch on Ram Bhaktas from Gujarat returning from Ayodhya after Karseva. It was learnt that these UP police officers had witnessed the whole incident of fire in bogie no. S-6 of Sabarmati Express train on 27-02-2002. The Sangh Parivar and Modi Government had
projected the theory of international conspiracy behind Godhra train fire, killing 59 Karsevaks, for achieving Hindu communal mobilization for electoral dividends.

5. The Gujarat police who investigated Godhra train fire case initially and the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Apex Court under Dr. R. K. Raghavan, later, had avoided to bring on record the version of UP police officers who were eye-witnesses to the incident, so far. (I had provided the above information to the Justice Nanavati Commission and SIT in May 2010, through my Fifth Affidavit and copy of the same is enclosed for your kind perusal). In my view the SIT had refused to enquire into my information in the Affidavit because revelation of truth by UP Police might upset the hitherto projected theory of international conspiracy by Muslims to kill Ram Bhaktas in Godhra, by the CM Narendra Modi and the then Dy. Prime Minister sh. L. K. Advani, within hours of the incident on 27-02-2002.

6. Information about Gujarat police bribing witnesses to create evidence in support of the conspiracy theory was brought out in the Operation Kalank by Tehelka magazine. But this information was not probed further by the SIT.

7. In my view the SIT did not act upon my suggestion to record evidence of UP policemen in May 2010, months before the closure of the case by the court, because version of UP police might be contrary to SIT’s conclusions about the ignition, process and outcome of the train fire tragedy. Any information nullifying the conspiracy theory would destroy the very foundations of the Sangh Parivar’s campaign against the Muslims and BJP’s propaganda obliquely justifying the anti-minority bloodbath in Gujarat subsequent to Godhra train fire incident.

8.  I humbly submit you to kindly initiate suitable action to trace out the UP police officers, who were deputed to accompany the Gujarat contingent of Karsevaks and had witnessed the Godhra train fire incident and thereafter get their affidavits filed before the Justice Nanavati Commission and other appropriate judicial bodies. Your action in this direction would be a great morale booster to all people in India committed to the ideals of secularism, democracy and the Rule of Law.

9. I will be staying in Noida, House No. B-121, 1st floor, Sector 51 from 01-04-2012 to 10-04-2012 for private work and am ever willing to meet you during the above period in Delhi at your convenience. I am also ready to interact on the relevant matter with any responsible person deputed by you.

Best wishes

Respectful regards,

Yours faithfully

R. B. Sreekumar


Shri. Akhilesh Yadav
Hon. Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh
Lal Bahadur Shastri Bhawan,
