Ahmedabad, April 26: A special court today rejected application of some of the victims of 2002 Gulburg society case seeking directions for special investigation team (SIT) to further investigate the details of the CD containing records of phone calls between police officers, political leaders and some of the accused during riots.

Judge B J Dhandha hearing the case, rejected the application saying that the SIT was still investigating the cases and was going to place its report before the Supreme Court.

Advocate S M Vora representing the victims had argued that the SIT has placed on record call details of the accused in the case, but has not put on record the phone call details of persons who were in touch with the accused in the case.

These other persons named in the application include Tanmay Mehta, Anil Mukim, Sanjay Bhavsar of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's office (CMO), the then DGP K Chakravarthi, former Minister of State for Home Gordhan Zadafia and others.

Vora had sought directions for the SIT to place on record phone call details of 27 persons contained in the CD prepared by IPS officer Rahul Sharma in 2002.

He had said that SIT should record statements of these persons, verify their phone numbers, cross examine them as to with whom they had talked on phone and place those statements on record of the court.
