Teesta Setalvad
Ahmedabad, Feb 13: Social activist - Teesta Setalvad, who is mostly known for her anti-Narendra Modi activities, claimed that she was receiving death threats ever since the SIT report on the 2002 riots was submitted to the Gujarat court.

Teesta's statement came on Monday, Feb 13 when a magisterial court is expected to pronounce its verdict over the closure report submitted by the Special Investigation Team (SIT).

The report was based on the complaint filed against Modi and others in the 2002 riots case. According to sources, the SIT in its closure report mentioned that they had not found any prosecutable evidence against Modi to name him an accused in the case.

The SIT filed its closure summary before the metropolitan court on the case filed by Zakia Jafri, the widow of slain Congress MP Ehsan Jafri.

Modi along with 62 other accused has been relieved in the case filed by Zakia. The Supreme Court had earlier ordered the SIT to probe the allegation made by Zakia on the Gulbarg Society massacre that saw the death of 67 people. She had stated that there was a larger conspiracy behind the attacks.

The probe agency headed by former CBI chief R K Raghavan could not find any evidence on this to make Modi and others culpable.
