After IPS officers Sanjiv Bhatt and Rahul Sharma, the Modi government’s latest victim to be DIG Rajneesh Rai, who has told the Central Administrative Tribunal that his annual confidential report has been downgraded by the state government.

Rai had sent a report accuses former state DGP PC Pande of conspiring to kill Tulsi Prajapati in 2006. Rai in his report had claimed that former Gujarat home minister Amit Shah was influencing the investigations in the fake encounter cases.
