The court in Ahmedabad noted last month that the SIT’s final report in the 2002 Gujarat-riots-related Gulberg Society massacre case has found no evidence against any of the 62 accused; that list includes Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
The court had observed that since the SIT has filed a closure report, Ms Jafri, the main complainant, in keeping with Supreme Court orders, must be given the report and supporting documents filed by the SIT before May 10.
Ms Jafri’s case relates to the killing by a riotous mob of 69 people, among them her husband and former Congress MP Ehsaan Jafri, on February 28, 2002 at the Gulberg Housing Society in Ahmedabad where the Jafris lived. Ms Jafri has alleged that Mr Modi and several senior ministers and officials did nothing to prevent the killings. She had claimed that when the mob attacked the housing complex, her husband made frantic calls to the police and even to the Chief Minister’s office, for help but to no avail. For many years now, Ms Jafri has taken her legal battle against the Chief Minister and others from court to court
