New Delhi: Social activist Teesta Setalvad
today contested BJP`s claim that the Supreme Court order in
Gulburg society riot case has vindicated the party`s stand
that there is no shred of evidence against Gujarat Chief
Minister Narendra Modi in the case relating to 2002 riots in
the state.

Setalvad, who has been fighting legal battle for Gujarat
riots victim, said the apex court has given them an
opportunity to be heard before the magistrate.
"According to me and according to other petitioners, the
reason why it is a victory for us and not for Modi or BJP is
that it has gone past the FIR stage," she said.

The investigation has been treated as a valid
investigation under the law and now it has reached the charge
sheet stage," she further said.
The apex court today refused to pass any order on alleged
inaction of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to contain
riots in 2002 and left it to the concerned magistrate`s court
to decide the course of action against him on the basis of the
SIT report.
