Guj riots: Modi to cooperate with SIT probe

Gujarat government Thursday night said that the Chief Minister will cooperate with the process of law.



Ahmedabad: Reacting to the SIT`s summons in
connection with Ehsan Jaffery murder case in 2002 riots,
Gujarat government Thursday night said the Chief Minister will
cooperate with the process of law.

"The state government and the Chief Minister would
cooperate with the process of law," Gujarat government
spokesperson Jaynarayan Vyas said.

He, however, refused to comment further saying
whatever is required to follow the process of law will be done
by the state government.

Acting on the complaint of Zakia Jaffery, widow of slain
MP Ehsan Jaffery, the Supreme court constituted Special
Investigation Team has summoned Modi, directing him to appear
before the authority on March 21.

Jaffery has accused Modi and 62 others of hatching a
conspiracy to carry out anti-minority riots in the state in
2002 following burning of a coach of the Sabarmati Express
near Godhra railway station in February 2002 in which 59
people, mostly karsevaks, died.

Over 1,000 people, mostly belonging to the minority
community, were killed in the riots which had engulfed the
state for several months.
