Zakia Jafri’s lawyer on Tuesday cited the 1993 post-Babri demolition serial bombings,where underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was arraigned for conspiring the blasts despite not being present at the spot,to allege that the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team suffered from delusion that only those who killed and burnt people during the 2002 riots should be arrested. Jafri’s husband and former Congress MP Ahsan was killed in the massacre at Gulberg Society.

Protesting the SIT’s clean chit to Narendra Modi,Jafri’s lawyer Mihir Desai told the court,“The SIT is suffering from delusion that only those who had gone,killed and burnt should be arrested,people

behind killing and abetting can’t be arrested… only foot soldiers were arrested.” Desai criticised the SIT for arriving at two different conclusions on Modi’s alleged hate speech at Becharaji,Mehsana,during his Gaurav Yatra on September 9,2002.
