2002 Gujarat riots: HC to hear Zakia Jafri's petition today

A petition filed by Zakia Jafri challenged the order of a local court which upheld a SIT's clean chit to PM Modi and others.

Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday will hear a petition in the 2002 riots case.

A petition filed by Zakia Jafri, the wife of late Congress MP Ehsan Jafri who was killed in the massacre, challenged the order of a local court which upheld a special investigation team's (SIT) clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and others in the 2002 riots case.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Gujarat High Court had filed a closure report on February 8, 2012, saying there was no evidence against Modi in the riots.
