Ahmedabad: VHP leader Pravin Togadia on Saturday
filed a counter complaint against Zakia Jafri, widow of slain
Congress MP Ehsan Jaffery, and her son Tanvir, demanding their
immediate arrest.

Togadia, in his complaint, said Zakia and her son Tanvir
be arrested immediately, as they had made wrong allegations
against him.
The VHP leader said he never met or talked to either of
the two and they still filed a complaint against him
contending that he had threatened them.

Zakia and Tanvir, in their complaint given to state DGP
yesterday, have stated that Togadia made a threatening
statement against them after he deposed before the Special
Investigation team (SIT) on May 10.

Talking to the media persons after his appearance before
the SIT, Togadia had said that he would take "appropriate
action" against Zakia Jafri and Teesta Setalwad, who filed
petitions in the Supreme Court seeking justice for 2002 riots
victims in the state.
SIT was formed to probe in post-Godhra riots by Supreme
Court following a petition filed by Zakia.

"I want the police to launch a proper investigation and
arrest the two because they have been making wrong allegations
and filing false complaints against Hindu community," the VHP
leader said.
