Gujarat riots: HC rejects plea for deposition

modiAhmadabad: The Gujarat High Court rejected a petition submitted by NGO Jan Sangharsh Manch seeking Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s deposition before the Nanawati-Mehta Commission in the 2002 post Godra riots case. The order was passed by a High Court Bench comprising of  Justice Akil Kureshi and Justice Sonia Gokani.

According to the bench Modi was not obliged to appear before the commission and that it was the discretion of the commission whether to summon a person or not. The court had last week reserved its order on a petition by the NGO Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM) representing some of the riot victims in the Nanavati Commission.  The NGO is now likely to appeal in the Supreme Court.
