NGO seeks SIT report in Naroda Patiya riot case
Ahmedabad: Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM), an
NGO, on Friday filed an application seeking a direction to the
Special Investigation Team (SIT) which is investigating 2002
Naroda Patiya riot case to submit the Action Taken Report
(ATR) on the further probe it had conducted, before the court.
The application would come up for hearing next week as
the presiding judge was on leave today.
JSM, representing some of the post-Godhra riot victims,
contends that the SIT had been directed by the court last year
to file the progress report, which it had not done so far,
despite submitting progress report in the Supreme Court.
The SIT should also submit the ATR on the subsequent
probe, application says. As many as 95 persons were killed
in communal violence in Naroda on February 28, 2002.
Former minister in the Narendra Modi government, Maya
Kodnani, is one of 60 accused against whom the trial is on.
Most of the eye witnesses have been examined by the court.
