Days after a bailable warrant was issued against him,CBI inspector N S Raju on Monday deposed before the special trial court in Ahmedabad for the 2002 Naroda Gam massacre case.
Raju had earlier failed to appear before the court following which the special court presided over by designated judge Jyotsana Yagnik had issued bailable warrant against him. Subsequently,he tendered an apology before the court after which it ordered him to depose on Monday.
Special assistant public prosecutor in the case,Gaurang Vyas,said Rajus deposition went on throughout the day.
Raju is posted with CBIs Mumbai office as police inspector.
As part of the CBI team,Raju had probed the authenticity of a set of CDs and DVDs made by a private news channel that purportedly captured on camera some of the accused in the riots cases confessing to their role in the 2002 communal violence.
CBI had conducted the probe on the orders of the National Human Rights Commission.
The CDs and DVDs are part of evidence before the trial court.
