Summon those shown in Tehelka sting: Cong tells Godhra probe panel

October 31, 2007 03:48 IST

The Congress has asked the Nanavati-Shah Commission � which is probing the post-Godhra riots -- to summon for deposition all those who had been shown on the sting operation conducted by Tehelka.

"We have asked the Commission to summon for deposition all those who had been shown making statements on the Tehelka-Aaj Tak sting operation," said Hiralal Gupta, who is the advocate representing the Congress in the Commission.

"We also want it to summon Chief Minister Narendra Modi, former minister of state for home Gordhan Zadafia and others whose names were mentioned in connection with the post-Godhra violence by Shiv Sena members Babu Bajrangi and MLA Haresh Bhatt," he said.

The advocate also wanted the two-member enquiry panel to summon for evidence the journalists involved in the sting operation.

The Commission has kept the hearing of the Congress' application on November 11.
