Ahmedabad: The court of metropolitan magistrate posted the order on the plea of Zakia Jafri, wife of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri who was killed in 2002 post-Gujarat riots, for December 26. She is contesting against the closure report of SIT which gave a clean chit to the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the riots.

After arguments for over five months, the pronouncement of order was earlier deferred on November 28 for December 2.
Ehsan Jafri and 68 other people were killed during in the Gulbarg society massacre during the 2002 post-Godhra riots.

On February 8, 2012, SIT submitted its report clearing Modi’s name in any conspiracy. However, Zakia Jafri protested against the report and filed a petition in April seeking rejection of report and order from court to file chargesheet against Modi and all the others involved.
