Godhra Case: SIT gets SC nod for further probe

Supreme Court
New Delhi, Aug 19: The Supreme Court allowed the Special Investigating Team (SIT) to carry out further enquiry into the Godhra riots case, on Thursday, Aug 19.

The SC gave permission to the SIT for further enquiry against three people including former Home Minister Govardhan Zadafia and MK Tondon, denying it the permission to disclose the contents of the riots report before the Nanavati Commission.

Earlier on Apr 27, the apex court had asked the SIT, headed by former CBI Director RK Raghavan, to probe the role of 64 people, including that of Gujarat CM Modi in the post-Godhra riots cases.

The court directive came in response to a petition filed by Zakia Jaffrey, whose husband Ehsan Jaffrey, ex-Congress MP was illed during the Gulburg society riots along with 39 others.

In her complaint Zakia Jaffrey alleged that Modi, his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats aided and abetted the riots.
