NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the plea by sacked Gujarat cadre IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt seeking an SIT probe into allegations that he had hacked into the email account of the then additional advocate general of Gujarat, Tushar Mehta, and tampered with it.

Mehta is at present the additional solicitor general mainly representing the central government in the Supreme Court.

An apex court bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra while rejecting Bhatt's plea asked the trial court to complete the hearing as expeditiously as possible.

The verdict was pronounced by Justice Mishra.

It also rejected Bhatt's plea for an SIT probe into the allegation that he had forced his official driver to file an affidavit that he drove him to then chief minister Narendra Modi's official residence on Feb 27, 2002 where Modi allegedly asked his officers to let people vent their anger in the wake of Godhra train carnage.
