The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned by the petition filed by Zakia Jafri plea against the SIT report giving clean tab to the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and alternative high functionaries within the Gujarat riots of 2002.
A bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Krishna Murari granted the adjournment supporting the letter of invitation created on behalf of the petitioner.
Zakia Jarfi, the widow of Congress MLA Ehsan Jafri World Health Organization who was killed in the Gulberg Housing Society massacre throughout the 2002 Gujarat Riots, has approached the Supreme Court against the SIT report that dominated out any “larger conspiracy” by high state functionaries in instigating the communal riots following the Godhra massacre.
On February 8, 2012, SIT submitted its final report, giving Modi and 63 other clear messages that there was “no evidence” against them. The justice department accepted the final report. Zakia challenged this in the Gujarat Court case.
In Gregorian calendar month 2017, a bench of Justice Sonia Gokani refused to interfere with the Magistrate’s order, perceptive that “extensive investigation” has taken place into the matter beneath the observance of the Supreme Court.
However, giving a restricted relief to Zakia, the court mentioned that she is going to be at liberty toask for more investigation supported any contemporary materials.
