Gandhinagar, Mar 22 (ANI): The Gujarat High Court on Monday asked Justice Nanavati Commission which is probing the 2002 post-Godhra riot cases, whether it would summon State Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

The High Court issued the notice to Nanavati Commission through the state's Advocate General to reply to the court in this regard by April 1.

The Court gave instructions while hearing a petition filed by the Jan Sangharsh Manch, which represents the victims of the 2002 riots.

In April 2007, the JSM had moved an application before the Nanavati Commission demanding that Modi be summoned for questioning, but the commission has not called Modi for questioning.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) summoned Modi for questioning in connection with the Gulburg Society carnage, but Modi failed to show up before the commission. (ANI)
