New Delhi, July 06: CPI-M today demanded a high-level
judicial inquiry by a sitting Supreme Court judge into the
Godhra train massacre to ascertain the complete facts and
punish the guilty.
"While it is clear that the state-sponsored genocide in
Gujarat that followed the incendiary torching of the train in
Godhra was pre-planned, a similar question mark arises on the
Godhra incident," the party politburo, which began its two-day
session here, said in a statement.
It said the forensic science laboratory investigating
the Godhra train fire has revealed startling facts and under
the circumstances it was imperative to ascertain the full
facts and punish the guilty.
It demanded that a judicial inquiry by a sitting
Supreme Court judge be constituted immediately.
