2002 riots: SC refuses to hear plea on Modi clean chit
The Supreme Court on Friday declined to hear a petition questioning the clean chit given to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the 2002 communal riots.
The apex court also refused to entertain the plea that demanded reconstitution of the SIT to investigate "impartially" into the case.
The SIT report in the 2002 riots cases did not find any prosecutable evidence against Modi and 61 others.
The infamous Gujarat riots of 2002 left hundreds of Muslims dead, injured and tortured and came as a blot in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule in the state.
The riots followed an incident of train burning in Godhra in which Hindus returning from Ayodhya were killed by a Muslim mob.
