2002 Gujarat Riots: HC Likely to Announce Verdict on Zakia Jafri's Plea Today

Gujarat HC may pronounce its verdict on Zakia Jafri's plea today.

The Gujarat High Court is expected to announce its verdict on a plea of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri’s widow Zakia Jafri challenging the clean chit given by a lower court to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and 58 others regarding their alleged role in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Zakia had moved the Gujarat HC against a closure report filed by SIT in the 2002Gujarat riots case. Notably, her husband Ehsan Jafri was one of the victims of the riots as a mob had set their house in Gulberg Society on fire.

In December 2013, a metropolitan court here rejected Zakia’s plea to make Modi and others accused, after which she moved the high court in 2014.

On February 28, 2002, following the Godhra train burning incident, 68 people including Ehsan were killed by a mob at Gulberg Society here as riots swept many parts of Gujarat.
