Evidence against Narendra Modi ignored by riot probe team
Friday August 16, 2013 9:04 AM, News Network

Zakia Jafri, wife of Ehsan Jafri who was killed in the 2002 Gujarat riots, through her lawyer on Tuseday said that the sleuths who probed the Gulberg massacre case ignored the clinching evidence against state Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his alleged role in orchestrating the communal clashes.

Jafri's lawyer Mihir Desai told a court hearing her protest petition against the clean chit given to Modi by the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) that the probe officers suffered from the delusion that only those who killed and burnt people should be arrested while those who aided and abetted the crime were ignored.

"The SIT is suffering from delusion that only those who had gone, killed and burnt should be arrested, people behind killing and abetting can't be arrested... only foot soldiers were arrested", he said.

He cited the 1993 post-Babri demolition serial bombings, where underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was arraigned for conspiring the blasts despite not being present at the spot, and asked why SIT could not similarly implicate Modi and 57 others in the riots that left 1,500 people, mostly Muslims, dead.

"Our case is also against those who provoked, abetted, aided and planned.", said Desai.

He criticised the SIT for arriving at two different conclusions on Modi's alleged hate speech at Becharaji, Mehsana, during his Gaurav Yatra on September 9, 2002.
