COVID 19 Updates Supreme Court dismisses Zakia Jafri's plea challenging SIT 'clean chit' to Narendra Modi

The Supreme Court on Friday pronounced its verdict on the plea of Zakia Jafri, who challenged the clean chit given by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to then Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi and several others in the 2002 Gujarat riots. The court has dismissed her plea and said that they uphold the decision of the Magistrate in accepting the closure report submitted by the SIT in the larger conspiracy probe in the Gujarat riots in 2002.

The Apex Court said that they do not countenance the contention of the petitioner regarding the infraction of rule of law in the investigation.

The SC also said that the appeal of Zakia Jafri is devoid of merits and deserves to be dismissed.

Earlier, a bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and CT Ravikumar had reserved their judgement on Zakia Jafri’s petition seeking a probe behind the Gujarat riots on December 9, 2021.
