Supreme Court recalls notice on Narendra Modi
New Delhi: Supreme Court on Friday recalled its notice to the Gujarat government and the Nanavati Commission on a plea to summon Chief Minister Narendra Modi to record his statement on his alleged role in the 2002 post-Godhra riots in the state.
An apex court bench headed by Justice DK Jain recalled the notice, noting that it was issued not on a plea for summoning Modi by the Commission, but related to the summoning of some witness in Godhra train burning case.
Since a petition relating to the summoning of Modi before the Nanavati Commission is yet to be taken up by the top court, the bench took serious note of senior counsel Colin Gonsalves going wrong in the case.
"We trusted you, but this case has no connection to the witnesses mentioned. Hence we are recalling our order," the court said.
As another case relating to the summoning of Modi by the Nanavati commission is yet to be put up for hearing, the court directed that it will be taken up on March 26.
