SC vacates stay on Gujarat riots cases

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has vacated its stay on the pronouncement of judgement by the trial court in the 2002 Gujarat riots cases except on one case.

The apex court said the trial court shall not pronounce its judgement in one case relating to the killing of former Congress MP Ehsan Jaffrey in which Chief Minister Narendra Modi has been questioned by the Special Investigation Team (SIT). The bench said that the court can proceed with the trial in Jaffrey case as the SIT is still in the process of examining certain witnesses. 

But, the three-judge special bench of Justices D K Jain, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam passed the order vacating its May 6 stay on pronouncement of judgement in other cases. 

The apex court had stayed the pronouncement of judgement in the Gujarat riots cases following allegations of botched up investigation and demand for re-constitution of SIT.

This had been subsequently done following the bench’s earlier direction. AIR
