Ahmedabad: The Gujarat government on Wednesday said it has not accepted the resignation of fake encounter cases accused IPS officer D G Vanzara, who quit after indicting Chief Minister Narendra Modi. "The resignation tendered by D G Vanzara has not been accepted," Additional Chief Secretary (Home) S K Nanda told PTI. He, however, didn't give any specific reasons behind doing so.
Vanzara (59), a Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) rank officer, suspended and behind the bars in a string of fake encounter cases, had resigned from the service accusing the Modi government of having failed to protect the jailed police officers who fought against "Pakistan-inspired terrorism".
A 1987 batch IPS officer, considered close to Modi, said in his resignation letter, dated September 1, that police officers involved in alleged fake encounters "simply implemented the conscious policy" of the government whose place "should either be in Taloja central prison at Navi Mumbai or in Sabarmati Central Prison at Ahmedabad."
The controversial cop has accused the state government, particularly former Minister of State for Home Amit Shah, of betraying him and 32 other officers who are in jail in connection with encounter cases being probed by CBI. He said he used to adore Modi like 'God', who could not rise to the occasion under the "evil" influence of Shah, a co-accused in Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapati encounter cases.
Holding the Modi government responsible for his action along with other police officers, Vanzara said they had only "complied" with the policy of the Gujarat government.
"I would like to categorically state in the most unequivocal words that the officers and men of Crime Branch, ATS and Border Range, during the period between 2002 to 2007, simply acted and performed their duty in compliance of the conscious pro-active policy of zero tolerance towards terrorism of this government after Godhra riots," he had said in his 10-page resignation letter.
"Gujarat CID and central agency CBI had arrested me and my officers in different encounter cases holding us to be responsible for carrying out alleged fake encounters," he had said.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
