Jethmalani appeals Supreme Court to recall order on SIT probe

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Mar 15 (ANI): Noted advocate Ram Jethmalani on Monday filed an application before the Supreme Court seeking recall of its directions ordering a probe by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the 2002 Gujarat riots incidents.

Jetmalani moved the plea while appearing on behalf of former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, Kalu Marwari who was also summoned by the SIT along with Gujarat Chief Minister Narandra Modi for their alleged role during 2002 Gujarat riots.

Activists who are fighting for the 2002 Gujarat riots victims opined that it's an attempt by Modi to legally question SIT's intentions.

On Thursday, the SIT issued summons to Modi asking to depose before it on March 21.

The SIT led by former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director R K Raghavan would question Modi on his alleged role in Gulbarg Society carnage where over 60 people were killed on February 28, 2002.

The summons to Modi is in connection to a petition submitted by Zakia Jaffrey, the widow of Ehsan Jaffrey, a former Congress Member of Parliament, who was murdered during the Gulberg Society riots.

The Gulberg case is totally separate from the nine other cases related to the Gujarat pogrom.

Zakia Jaffrey had filed a 100-page complaint alleging the involvement of Modi and 62 others. (ANI)
