While the task for the Special Investigation team (SIT) could be over with the questioning of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi some of his key cabinet colleagues are yet to be quizzed about their role in post-Godhra riots.


Modi was questioned in connection with a complaint filed by Zakia Jafri, widow of former MP Ehsan Jafri, who was killed in Gulburg society riots along with 68 others on February 28, 2002.

In her complaint, Zakia had alleged that Modi and 62 others, including his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats aided and abetted the riots which left over 1,000 people dead.

SIT is yet to question Ashok Bhatt, at present Speaker of the Gujarat Assembly, whose name figures at number two position just after Modi.

Bhatt, who was then state's health minister, according to Zakia's complaint, had positioned himself in Ahmedabad city police control room and made "sinister moves for carrying out the conspiracy and other crimes".

Another person yet to be questioned is the present Minister of state for Home Amit Shah, who was then MLA from Sarkhej Assembly constituency.

VHP international General Secretary Pravin Togadia, who has also been named by Zakia is yet to be quizzed. PTI
