Suspended Gujarat police officer D.G. Vanzara has quit the IPS after alleging that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and former minister of state for home Amit Shah were also to blame for “encounter deaths” in Gujarat that have kept him and 31 other officers in jail for years.

Vanzara said in the letter from the Sabarmati Central Prison that if he and his colleagues could be charged with “fake encounters”, then the CBI must “arrest the policy formulators also as we…simply implemented the conscious policy of this government”.

“The logic is very simple, i.e. (the) government and police officers are sailing in the same boat and have to swim or sink together. None should try to outsmart the other and try to swim at the cost of other,” said the suspended “supercop” who has been in jail since his arrest in April 2007 in connection with more than one “encounter killing”.

Vanzara said he and his colleagues in the Crime Branch, ATS and Border Range “simply acted and performed their duties in compliance (with) the conscious policy of this government” after a spurt in Pakistan-sponsored terrorism following the Godhra train burning and Gujarat riots of 2002.

Towards the end of his letter, Vanjara quotes Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, though only to his convenience as,

During the course of my last six years' silence, I exhausted all the means and methods to secure justice for me and my officers from this government which hurled on us nothing but heaps of disappointments and frustrations. Hence the only way open for me and my officers is to adopt the path of Dharma as defined by Shri Guru Govind Singh, the tenth Divine Lord of Sikhs, who ordained to his disciples, "when all the ways and doors for getting justice are exhausted and closed, it is just (Dharma) to draw the sword". Accordingly, I have a moral justification to expose real culprits behind encounter cases by calling them Spade a Spade.
