Ahmedabad, Sep 26 (UNI) Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM) today totally rubbished the pre-planned conspiracy theory of the Nanavati Commission, whose report was tabled by the Gujarat government in the state assembly yesterday, and termed it a ''derailed report.'' Addressing reporters here this evening, Dr Mukul Sinha, advocate of the JSM, an NGO fighting for the rights of riot victims, said the Commission had borrowed and virtually translated the various confessional statements collected by the police to establish the conspiracy theory and there was nothing in the report to prove the conspiracy theory.

The Commission, while analyzing the deposition of police officer Raju Bhargav, had completely twisted the evidence to suit the conspiracy theory. Mr Bhargav had clearly stated that when he reached the S-6 coach of the Sabarmati Express, the passengers, with burn injuries, were still jumping out and all of them had injuries above their waist, he alleged.

The advocate said the minimum requirement to come to the prima facie conclusion regarding conspiracy theory was that the pre-planning was done on February 26, 2002, a day prior to the carnage on February 27, 2002, on the basic presumption that the train was running at right time and would reach Godhra at around 0255 hrs.

The conspirators must necessarily have information that the karsevaks were travelling in Sabarmati Express that too in S-6 coach, certain specific persons were required to be detailed to carry out the function of stopping the train at the predetermined spot and fuel required to burn the coach had to be collected and stored at relevant spot, which was all missing in the report, he said.

He alleged that the Commission had not even tried to find out what was the original plan, if any, as the Sabarmati Express had reached the Godhra railway station on February 27 around five hours behind the scheduled time.
