2002 Gujarat riots case: SC to hear plea against clean chit to PM Modi on Nov. 19

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Monday, November 19, Zakia Jafri’s plea challenging the clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was then chief minister of Gujarat, and others on allegations of a “larger conspiracy” in the 2002 riots, news agencies reported.

Zakia, the widow of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, who was killed in the riots had alleged that there was a larger conspiracy in the riots.

In October 2017, the Gujarat high court had upheld the clean chit given to Modi and 58 others by the Special Investigation Team.

The petition filed by Zakia Jafri and Teesta Setalvad’s Citizens for Justice and Peace had challenged the findings of the Supreme Court-appointed SIT and the ruling of a magistrate court that upheld its closure report of 2012.

Ehsan Jafri and 68 others were killed when a rioting mob attacked their Muslim-dominated Gulberg Society in Ahmedabad on February 28, 2002 in the aftermath of the Godhra train carnage.
