SC refuses to stay circulation of Godhra Commission report

September 26, 2008 14:03 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay the circulation of Justice G T Nanavati's report about the Godhra carnage in Gujarat.

A petition seeking a stay on the report was mentioned before a bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, which posted its hearing for October 13.

Godhra Commission gives Modi a clean chit

The NGO, Citizen for Justice and Peace, approached the apex court contending that a report by Justice U C Banerjee
Committee on the same carnage has been stayed and a similar step should be taken for the Justice Nanavati Commission Report, which was tabled in the Gujarat assembly on Thursday.

Godhra truth still elusive

"There is absolutely no evidence to show that either the chief minister or any of the ministers in his council or
police officers had played any role in the Godhra incident," stated the report of Justice Nanavati, a former Supreme Court judge.

The report that probed the Sabarmati Express coach burning in February 2002, which killed 58 kar sevaks who were on their way back from Ayodhya, said it was a pre-planned conspiracy hatched at the Aman Guest House in Godhra.
