The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted another three months to a court in Ahmedabad to conclude the trial in the 2002 Gulberg Society massacre case, in which former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri and 68 others were killed.

A bench led by Chief Justice H L Dattu, however, declined to grant bail to the accused before completion of the trial. Some of the accused in the case had written to the court, seeking bail because of the delay in completion of trial proceedings.

At the same time, the bench refused to interfere with the Gujarat High Court order of 2013, granting conditional bail to all 21 people who were convicted and sentenced to life term in a case relating to Deepda Darwaza riots in which 11 persons of a family were killed.
