Gujarat's suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma arrested

Ahmedabad, Sept 30 (IBNS): Gujarat's suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma was on Tuesday arrested from his Ahmedabad residence in a corruption case.
Sharma was arrested after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached his properties in Gandhinagar on Monday, reports said.
Sharma has, however, claimed that he is being persecuted for exposing Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Gujarat's suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma earlier tried to lodge an FIR against Narendra Modi and his associate and former home minister Amit Shah in the snooping on a young woman case but police did not file the same while accepting his complaint, said reports. 
The Gujarat Police reportedly refused to take the FIR and he went to file the same in the office of the DSP. 
Sharma had said earlier that he was persecuted by the state government led by Narendra Modi back in 2010 because he knew the relationship between a state politician and the woman who is in the middle of the snooping controversy linking Modi and Amit Shah. 
On Nov 15, Gulail and CobraPost had claimed they had exposed how a young woman was being stalked by the Gujarat Police at the behest of Shah, then state home minister, who in turn had been carrying out the order of one "Saheb" (hinting at Modi) in 2009.
However, in the case, the father of the girl said the move was at their request and his daughter was aware that her movements were being monitored for her safety. 
The father of the girl in a letter to the National Commission for Women said there is no need to probe the matter further. His letter came out after Pradeep Sharma said alleged that the Modi government persecuted him because he knew about the "snooping".
The girl's father also said that he knew Modi over two decades as against the claim of the bureaucrat Pradeep Sharma that he introduced him to Modi.
