SC rejects plea questioning clean chit to Modi on role in 2002 Gujarat riots
The Supreme Court on Friday has turned down a plea questioning the clean chit given to the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots.
A bench comprising of Justices H.L. Dattu and S.A. Bobde also declined the plea for reconstituting the Special Investigation Team (SIT) involving retired judges of the apex court on the ground that this option was not good to raise it at this moment. It also turned down the inclusion of a person belonging from the minority community into the SIT.
Soon after the remark, the advocate who had filed the petition, decided to withdraw it and it was allowed by the court.
The Supreme Court on April 4 expressed satisfaction over the probes conducted by former CBI director RK Raghavan who headed the SIT in nine cases related to the 2002 riots in Gujarat post Godhra.
