More than two decades after the incident, a sessions court in Gujarat’s Palanpur on March 28 sentenced sacked IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt to 20 years in jail in a 1996 case involving planting of drugs to frame a lawyer.

This is the second conviction of Bhatt in a criminal case. He is already sentenced to life imprisonment in a 1990 Jamnagar custodial death case, a punishment upheld by the Gujarat High Court this January. The Palanpur court in Banaskantha ordered that the two jail terms will run consecutively, which means the 20-year sentence will start after the end of the life sentence.
