Godhra, Feb 27: Scores of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) workers today gathered at a temple here to pay homage to those killed in the Sabarmati Express carnage on this day in 2002.

They lit lamps in the temple and observed a two-minute silence in memory of the 58 passengers who perished in the blaze in the S6 coach of the train on February 27, 2002. A majority of the victims were VHP kar sevaks, returning from Ayodhya.

They also went to Signal Falia, where the burnt coach has been kept. They were not allowed to go near the coach for security reasons.

They handed their flowers to the securitymen on duty and shouted slogans 'Ram sevaks amar rahe' A 'sunder kaand' and 'aarti' programme has been organised in the evening at the local MLA Harish Bhatt's residence to pay homage to the carnage victims.

Dahod SP D S Bhatt supervised the security arrangements at the venue.
