Ahmedabad: Zakia Jaffery, who had filed a
complaint against Narendra Modi and others in connection with
post-Godhra riots, today said she was disappointed with media
reports that the Supreme Court-appointed SIT has given a clean
chit to the Chief Minister.

"We had submitted all the facts to SIT, and then they
have submitted such a report, it is very disappointing,"
Zakia, whose husband was among the 69 persons killed in the
Gulberg Housing society riots, told reporters.

"However, I will consult my lawyers and decide the
further course of action," Zakia, who had filed the complaint
against Modi and others, said.

The SIT had yesterday filed a closure report before a
magistrate in a sealed cover on the complaint of Zakia.

Though TV channels have said the SIT has in its report
maintained there is no prosecutable evidence against Modi,
there has been no official word that it has given a clean chit
to the Chief Minister.

In her complaint, Jaffery had sought prosecution of
Modi, along with 57 others, for aiding and abetting communal
the riots.

Around 1,200 people, mostly Muslims, had been killed
in the communal riots in 2002.
