2002 Gujarat Riots: Supreme Court Dismisses Zakia Jafri’s Plea Against SIT Clean Chit to PM Narendra Modi

Karnataka: PM Narendra Modi Condoles Loss of Lives in Road Accident in Kalaburagi

New Delhi, June 24: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea of Zakia Jafri, the wife of slain MP Ehsan Jafri, challenging the Special Investigation Team’s (SIT) clean chit to 64 people, including then Chief Minister Narendra Modi, in the 2002 Gujarat riots case.

A bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar upheld the Special Metropolitan Magistrate’s order rejecting Jafri’s protest petition against the report filed by the SIT.

The top court upheld the Gujarat High Court order and said Jafri’s plea is devoid of merit. Ehsan Jafri was among the 68 killed in Gulberg Society in Ahmedabad on February 28, 2002, a day after a coach of the Sabarmati Express was burnt at Godhra killing 59 and triggering riots in Gujarat.
