    The Supreme Court on Monday refused to pass any order on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s alleged inaction to contain the 2002 Gujarat riots after the Godhra carnage and referred the matter to the concerned magistrate in Ahmedabad for a decision.

    A three-judge bench headed by Justice D.K. Jain directed the Special Investigation Team, which is probing the riot cases, to submit its final report before the magistrate who was asked to decide whether to proceed against Mr. Modi and 62 others, which includes senior government officials.

    The bench made it clear that there was no need for it to further monitor the riot cases.

    The bench also comprising justices P. Sathasivam and Aftab Alam said in case the magistrate decides to drop proceedings against Mr. Modi and others, he has to hear the plea of slain MP Ehsan Jafri’s widow Zakia Jafri, who had filed a complaint against the Gujarat Chief Minister.

    The court passed the order on a petition by Ms. Jafri alleging that Mr. Modi and 62 top government officials deliberately refused to take action to contain riots in the State, triggered by the February 27, 2002 Godhra train carnage.

    Ms. Jafri, who lost her husband Ehsan Jafri, a former Congress MP in the Gulberg Housing Society massacre during the riots, had told the Supreme Court that a proper probe should be carried out by the SIT, headed by former CBI chief R.K. Raghavan, into her allegations of inaction and various acts of omission and commission by Mr. Modi and others after the riots.

    The Supreme Court had earlier handed over the task of probing the case to SIT which submitted its report in the court.

    After the SIT filed its probe report in a sealed cover, the court had also asked senior advocate Raju Ramachandran, who is assisting it as amicus curiae, to analyse the SIT probe findings and file a confidential report on it.

    Mr. Ramachandran subsequently had submitted his report to the court, which passed the order after going through the reports by the SIT and Mr. Ramachandran and referred the case back to the concerned Ahmedabad magistrate to decide the further course of action in the case.

    Mr. Ramachandran’s report filed in a sealed cover had analysed the SIT probe findings and evidence adduced by it in the case.

    Mr. Ramachandran, assisting the bench in nine riot cases, had submitted his report on the direction of the Supreme Court which had on May 5 sought an “independent overviewâ€￾ of the evidence recorded by the SIT.

    The court had asked Mr. Ramachandran to analyse the SIT probe findings, take comments and statements of the witnesses and, if needed, interact with them for an “objectiveâ€￾ assessment of the evidence.

    The bench had on July 28 said it would pass the order on the basis of the report submitted by the amicus curiae.

    The court had also turned down the plea of the State government seeking a copy of the report and said it would be given only at the appropriate stage.

    The Hindu : News / National : SC ruling has vindicated our stand: BJP

    Truth has triumphed after many years, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said, congratulating the Gujarat Chief Minister

    Welcoming the Supreme Court order in the Gulbarga society case, BJP today said it has vindicated the party’s stand that there is no shred of evidence against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the case relating to the 2002 riots in the state.

    Veteran leader L.K. Advani welcomed the Supreme Court verdict, saying it has come as a big relief to BJP.

    “Never in history of India has there been misinformation propaganda against any political leader as it has been against Mr. Modi,” he said in Mumbai.

    Congratulating Mr. Modi in a message on Twitter, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said, “Narendrabhai has passed agnipareeksha (test by fire) today. My heartiest congratulations to him. Satyamev Jayate. Varsho baad aaj satya ki vijay hui hai (truth has triumphed after many years).”

    Her Rajya Sabha counterpart Arun Jaitley said there is not a shred of evidence of involvement of Mr. Modi in the riots and the SC verdict has vindicated the BJP stand.

    “BJP has throughout maintained that allegations against Narendra Modi are totally false and there is no shred of evidence against him to connect him with the unfortunate riots,” Mr. Jaitley said in Delhi.

    The lawyer said the court had asked SIT to investigate the Gulberg society case and no evidence of Mr. Modi’s involvement was found. The Supreme Court has now stated that a supplementary chargesheet should be filed and the case tried in a lower court.

    “We stand vindicated that there is no evidence to connect Mr. Modi to the riots,” Mr. Jaitley said.

    He also took digs at the rights activists who have been gunning for Mr. Modi in the riots case. “Propoganda is no substitute for evidence,” he said.

    Mr. Jaitley stated that he was glad SC has monitored the riots case and its ruling shows it has faith that a fair trial can be held in a Gujarat court.

    Mr. Modi expressed his happiness over the ruling with a Tweet, “God is great”.

    Even after this SC's decision , these Modi harassing goons and so called reporters are not even hesitating to question SC ! how lower they can go ? And when no argument works then they says Modi never expressed remorse for 02 riots ! why would he ? simply its not his fault. He took political responsibility and resigned at that time. That's enough.

    SC has sent it trial court. What case has trial court against Modi? None.

    A clear, clean chit by SC. Mind you you HC and SC are always on look out to fix BJP and Modi.
