COVID 19 Updates Gujarat Riots: SC Upholds Order Accepting SIT Report, Rejects Zakia Jafri's Plea

Claiming that the appeal was “devoid of merits,” the Supreme Court, on Thursday, 24 June, upheld the magistrate’s decision to accept the final report submitted by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the 2002 Gujarat riots case.

The order came in a petition filed by Zakia Jafri (wife of deceased Congress MP Ehsan Jafri) challenging the clean chit given by the SIT to the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others in the alleged larger conspiracy behind the riots. Jafri had sought a probe in the purportedly larger conspiracy.

The top court had reserved judgment in the matter on 9 December.
