Guj case: Zakia Jafri's plea rejected

An Ahmedabad court today has ordered that the SIT report on the Gujarat riots be given to Zakia Jafri on May 10, 2012. This is the final report of the SIT on the 2002 Gulbarg society massacre.  Zakia's husband was among the 69 people killed in the Gulbarg Society during the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Narendra Modi, accused by slain former Congress MP Ehsaan Jafri's wife Zakia of not acting against rioters, was given a clean chit by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the Gulbarg Society massacre case today.

The SIT told the court of Metropolitan Magistrate MS Bhatt that no offence had been established against any of the 63 accused including Modi.
