Gujarat HC reserves order on petition against SIT probe

Ahmedabad- The Gujarat High Court today reserved the order on the petition challenging post-Godhra probe by special investigation team (SIT) against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and 62 others, till July 24.

Justice D H Waghela was hearing a petition from former BJP MLA from Lunavada, Kalubai Malivad, against the probe by Supreme Court-appointed SIT into a complaint by Zakia Jaffrey, whose husband ex-MP Ehsan Jaffrey was killed during the 2002 riots in Gulburg society along with 39 others.

She has alleged in her complaint that Modi, his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats aided the post-Godhra riots of 2002.

Malivad’s lawyer S B Vakil today submitted that Zakia’s complaint was “vague where allegations have been made against high profile people”.

He said that SC had ordered SIT to “look into” the complaint which does not empower it to conduct investigation.
