Ahmedabad, Dec.2 (ANI): A local court here on Monday deferred the pronouncement of verdict on Zakia Jafri’s petition against Special Investigation Team (SIT) closure report that gave a clean chit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others in 2002 Gujarat riots.
Jafri’s plea has been adjourned till December 26.
“Today was the second date for order in the case. For some reason, the magistrate could not prepare the complete order because he was busy with other cases. He said he would prepare the complete report and then announce. They asked the date to be on December 26,” SIT council RS Jamuar told media here today.
Jafri is the wife of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri was among 69 people killed in the Gulbarg Society massacre here during the 2002 riots.
SIT had submitted its report on February 8 last year, clearing Modi’s name in any conspiracy.
She had filed a petition against the SIT report in April seeking its rejection and an order to file chargesheet against Modi and others during the 2002 riots. (ANI)
