🪡 While upholding the findings of the Special Investigation Team that gave a clean chit to @narendramodi in the #ZakiaJafri case, SC added that SIT had “come out with flying colours”.

Q: When exactly did Modi learn of the massacre on 28 Feb 2002—and how well did SIT quiz him?
2️⃣ In his reply to SIT in 2010, Modi claimed he learnt of the #GulbergSociety massacre only at a meeting that evening, at 8.30 pm.

Really?

While a mob of thousands attacked a Muslim pocket in #Ahmedabad, the CM—who *also* held the home portfolio—was unaware for 5 full hours?
3️⃣ The implausibility of Modi’s defence is brought out by former @IndianExpress and @timesofindia legal affairs editor Manoj Mitta.

In his 2014 book, ‘The Fiction of Fact-Finding: Modi and Godhra’, Mitta reveals how #SIT bought into Modi’s claim with barely any challenge.

In deciding Zakia Jaffri's petition the Supreme Court Judges went beyond the questions before them. Not content with simply dismissing the petition, they sought to assert that the PM and HM were innocent and cast aspersions on the motives of the petitioner and her supporters
This is dangerous. It may well be true that there may be malafide intent behind a civil claim or a criminal prosecution. Such suspicions may be backed by evidence in which case it is for the police to investigate and prosecute. But in this case, the SC judges are
Using the prestige of their office to make allegations of intent and motive for which they cannot possibly have evidence. If all they are doing is voicing their suspicions then they are descending from the high ground of judicial independence and objectivity.

Supreme Court dismisses Zakia Jafri plea challenging the SIT clean chit given to Narendra Modi and others in the 2002 Gujarat riots. SC also noted that the proceedings were pursued for an ulterior motive, & that all those involved in the abuse of process need to be prosecuted.
Supreme Court dismisses criminal conspiracy allegation in 2002 riots: “There is no indication about the perceivable link to show hatching of criminal conspiracy at the highest levels for causing and precipitating mass violence across the State against the minority community."
Supreme Court has observed that a combined effort was made by disgruntled officials of Gujarat state (read SanjeevBhatt, PradeepSharma) along with others (read Teesta, MukulSinha) to sensationalise by making false revelations. It also rejected evidentiary value of Tehelka sting.
