Sanjeev Bhatt, had alleged that Modi had "instructed senior
police officials in a meeting not to act to protect Muslims
from violence", the party said the statement "confirms the
culpability of the Chief Minister in the pogroms".
"There should be no further delay in the
investigations into the role of Narendra Modi and initiating
steps to prosecute him," the CPI(M) Politburo said in a
It said Bhatt`s affidavit filed in the Supreme Court
has "provided direct evidence of the role of the Gujarat Chief
Minister in the 2002 pogroms against the minority community".
