Thane, Jan 19 (UNI) Justice B N Srikrishna, who headed the one-man commission that went into the 1993 riots in Mumbai, today said he was not satisfied with the manner in which his report was being implemented.
''I am not satisfied with the way the report is being handled as there are quite a few gaps in its implementation,'' the retired Supreme Court Judge said while replying to a query from a journalist on the sidelines of a two-day national Seminar on 'Indian Philosophy, It's relevance in the 21st Century' organised by the Vidyaprasarak Mandal Educational Complex here.
Justice Srikrishna, who retired from the apex court in May 2006, declining to elaborate on his comments, said, ''It is a highly politicalised issue and I don't want to comment further on this.'' This is perhaps the first time that Justice Srikrishna has spoken out openly on the implementation of the Srikrishna Commission Report.
His comments assumed significance in the light of the fact that the State Government recently set up three special courts to hear 30-odd major cases relating to 1992-93 Mumbai riots.
The setting up of three special courts came in the wake of a prolonged campaign launched by a activists group demanding the in toto implementation of the Srikrishna Commission Report.
