Zakia, the wife of Ehsan Jafri, an ex-MP who was killed in one of the worst incidents during the riots, has challenged the Gujarat High Court's October 5, 2017, order rejecting her plea against the SIT's decision.
Zakia Jafri has challenged an October 5, 2017 judgment of the Gujarat High Court which upheld the clean chit given to several politicians and senior bureaucrats by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in its closure report, citing lack of “prosecutable evidence” against them.
The court also dismissed Zakia Jafri's allegation against the accused that the riots were part of a larger conspiracy. The court, however, said that Jafri's plea succeeds as far as her demand of fresh investigation was concerned before the magisterial court.
He was reacting to a claim made by ex-DGP R B Sreekumar in his book Gujarat:Behind the curtain that Congress leaders had then prevented Gandhi from meeting Zakia, wife of Ehsan Jafri who was killed in the 2002 Gulberg Society massacre.
