Security has been stepped up in the city and Godhra town in wake of the 10th anniversary of the Sabarmati Express train carnage, which killed 59 people and triggered large-scale communal violence in many parts of Gujarat in 2002 claiming over 1200 lives.

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has organised prayers ceremonies in Ahmedabad and in Godhra to remember victims of the train carnage, while the post-Godhra riot victims and family would be gathering to seek justice for the deceased.
