New Delhi, Dec.3 (ANI): The Supreme Court (SC) appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) is reported to have given a clean chit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
Narendra Modi has long been alleged to connive with 62 others including some cabinet colleagues, police officials and bureaucrats in aiding and abetting the post-Godhra program that claimed 1000 lives in 2002.
The SIT grilled Narendra Modi a few months ago after the SC directed it to enquire into the allegations by the wife of a former Congress MP who was killed in the carnage along with 69 others. According to some newspaper reports the SIT gave a clean chit to Modi as it couldn't find evidence to substantiate his alleged connivance in the riots.
Arun Jaitley, leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha, said, " The matter is sub-judice and we can't be sure of what the SIT has said." e added that if the Modi's reported acquittal by the SIT is true than their long-standing stand is finally vindicated.(ANI)
