New Delhi, March 21 (ANI): Criticising the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendrea Modi for not appearing before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the Gujarat riots case, the Congress party on Sunday said that it was "contemptuous" and showed that he "loves to hide".

"The SIT's direction to Narendra Modi to appear before it shows the seriousness and importance attached to the issue by the apex court," Congress party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said.

"For Modi to avoid appearing on any ground or pretext is contemptuous and would show that he loves to hide," he said

Modi has been summoned by SIT in connection with a complaint of Zakia Jaffery, widow of former MP Eshan Jaffery who was killed by a mob along with 69 others at Gulburg society in February 2002. (ANI)
