Supreme Court has commenced the final hearing on a petition by  Zakia Ahsan Jafri's plea challenging the SIT report giving clean chit to the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and other high functionaries in the Gujarat riots of 2002.

A Bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and CT Ravikumar is hearing the matter.

Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal arguing for the petitioner 

Zakia Jarfi, widow of Congress MLA Ehsan Jafri who was killed in the Gulberg Housing Society massacre during the 2002 Gujarat Riots, has approached the Supreme Court through a special leave petition challenging the SIT report which ruled out any "larger conspiracy" by high state functionaries in instigating the communal riots following the Godhra massacre.

    Sibal: SIT closure report also relates to Zakia’s complaint which isn’t limited to Gulbarg.

    Sibal suggests: We can start (going through the closure report) tomorrow.

    Bench: This wasn’t the closure report?

    Sibal: This was the SIT first report.

    Bench: No, no we’ve to see the closure report.

    Sibal: I don’t want to go into the event of 27th. As I said, I don’t want to make this a sensation issue, that is not my concern.

    Sibal: Why has this not been investigated!

    We can’t look away like this. This republic is too great to look away. 

  • 26 Oct 2021 10:22 AM GMT

    Sibal: It's quite clear that the complaint didn’t relate to Gulbarg alone, neither did the material.

    If we point something to the court & the court says I will not look at it, where do we  go, which court do we go to?

    Sibal adds: We were proposing an FIR but the court said 'No, what's the need of an FIR, we are sending you to the Magistrate.'

    Sr Adv Sibal takes court through the SIT report. 

  • 26 Oct 2021 10:15 AM GMT

    Sibal: I went to court since I filed a complaint with DGP & nothing was done. Protest petition & amicus were all looking at these facts, not just at Gulbarg.
