Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court today asked the Nanavati-Mehta Commission, probing the 2002 Godhra train carnage and the subsequent riots in the state, to make it clear whether its observation that there was not enough ground to summon Chief Minister Narendra Modi and six others to examine their role in the riots, was final or a tentative one.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice S J Mukhopadhyaya and Justice Aqil Qureshi also asked the Commission to respond by April 1.
The HC directive also coincides with the current uncertainty about Mr Modi's appearance before Special Investigation Team (SIT) in Gandhinagar, before which he did not turn up yesterday as summoned earlier.
The SIT was constituted by the Supreme Court to look into nine major cases relating to the 2002 riots.
Earlier, on September 18, 2009, the Commission had passed an order saying that considering that the Jan Sangharsh Manch, representing the victims, had made certain vague allegations against Modi and six others and the questioning of the witnesses, the Commission is of the view that there was not enough ground to summon Modi before the probe team for questioning.
The Commission had further stated in the order that allegations made in JSM's application were vague and based on wrong or unwarranted assumptions.
JSM had sought quashing of the Nanavati Commission's order in the Gujarat High Court and prayed that Modi and three others -- the then home minister Gordhan Zadafia, health minister Ashok Bhat and DCP Zone 5, R J Savani-- be called for cross examination with regard to the 2002 riots.
