Ahmedabad: VHP leader Pravin Togadia will appear before the Supreme Court-constituted Special Investigation Team (SIT) for questioning tomorrow in connection with the complaint of Zakia Jaffery, whose husband was among 69 killed at Gulburg Society here during 2002 riots.

"I will appear before the SIT on Monday," Togadia said. He said he has informed the SIT that he would appear before it on May 10.

Togadia is one of the 63 persons who have been named by Zakia in her complaint regarding the massacre in Gulbarg Society which claimed her husband and former Congress MP Ehsan Jaffery among others in 2002 riots.

The VHP leader was called for questioning by SIT on April 19. However he failed to appear before it.

Zakia has alleged Chief Minister Narendra Modi and 62 others, including his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats, aided and abetted the post-Godhra riots.

The investigating agency, headed by former CBI director R K Raghavan, is probing the complaint of Zakia.

On March 27, Modi was also grilled by the SIT, which is to submit its report to the apex court by May 15.
