Guj Riots: Activist accused of 'cooking up tales'
New Delhi, Apr 14: The Special investigation Team appointed by the Supreme Court to look into the Gujarat Riots Case on Monday, Apr 13 came up with a report that the social activist Teesta Setalvad has cooked up 'macabre tales of killings'.
CBI director, who heads the SIT said that 'many incidents were cooked up, false witnesses were tutored to give evidence about imaginary incidents, and false charges levelled against the then Ahmedabad police chief P C Pandey'.
The report was submitted to the bench comprising of Justices Arijit Pasayat, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam.
The report presents a list of the false claims made by the activist such as the story of a gang rape on a Pregnant lady to the dumping of dead bodies into a well by rioters at Narora Patiya and the reports on Police botching up investigation into killing of British nationals.
The report also falsified the charge that Mr Pandey was helping mob that attacked the Gulbarga Society was untrue.
The Supreme Court is impressed with the SIT's findings. However, this has caused a set back in the investigation process of the 2002 Gujarat Riots.
