New Delhi, Mar 28: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was questioned on Saturday, Mar 27, by Special Investigation Team (SIT) for over nine hours in two separate sessions.

According to reports, Modi was asked a total of 62 questions related to Gulbarga Society riot case in which former Congress MP Ehsan Jaffery along with 68 others was killed.

The Chief Minister came out of the SIT headquarters at around 1.00 am after a second round of questioning that lasted nearly four hours.

Asked by the waiting journalists if he was satisfied by the panel's probe, Modi answered, "It's the Supreme Court that has to be satisfied."

"The panel told me my work is over," Modi said.

He refused to elaborate on the nature of questions asked by the SIT.

He said, "The questions, answers and the report will go to the Supreme Court and it will decide whether this can be made public....nothing is in my hands."

Modi's questioning comes eight years after the communal riots, which left over 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, dead in Gujarat.
