Former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt on May 11 alleged that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval could be behind the killing of Lt. Umar Fayyaz so as to escalate the conflict in Kasmir.
Without mincing his words Bhatt, in a tweet raised suspicion over the identity of killers who killed army officer Lt. Fayyaz and said that the people who may derive benefit from his killing are none other than NSA Advisor Ajit Doval.
Do we really know who killed Lt. Fayaz? Couldn’t it be the handiwork of renegades on the payroll of Doval & Co. to escalate the conflict?

Lt. Umar Fayaz was kidnapped from a wedding ceremony in South Kashmir on May 10 and later killed in a brutal manner by suspected militants.
Bhatt’s tweet enraged several users who accused him or garnering cheap publicity by his tweet and trying to use it as a leverage for his personal hatred towards Modi and Doval.
@sanjivbhatt Sanjiv! Remember country is bigger than personal hatred. What ur doing is very shameful. U r speaking ISI language n covering our enemies.

@sanjivbhatt And what if you are a Pakistani spy who disguised himself as Indian and became IPS officer to instigate destruction from inside??

@sanjivbhatt Doval is supreme patriot who risked life living in Pakistan to serve India. You serve Pakistan living in India.

Many even went to the extent of calling Bhatt a conspiracy theorist and reminded him that his loyalties should lie with his own country.

Bhatt, a former IPS officer, was terminated from services after he had raised questions about the conduct of then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in controlling the riots that had erupted in various parts of Gujarat back in 2002.
