Now I'll get justice: Zakia Jaffery on Modi

March 27, 2010 16:28 IST

"The law is not so blind that it will not provide me justice. Definitely I will get justice," Zakia Jaffery, on whose complaint Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has been summoned by the Special Investigation Team, on Saturday said.

Expressing happiness over Modi's appearance before the probe team, she said she was hoping to get justice now.

"Whatever he will speak today, he will speak the truth. The Chief Minister of such a big state of Gujarat should not lie. This is for the first time in the last eight years that he has been summoned and he will have to speak some part of the truth," she added.

SIT has summoned Modi to depose in connection with a complaint of Zakia, widow of former Congress Member of Parliament Eshan Jaffery, who was killed in Gulburg society riot case of 2002 along with 69 others.

Another riot victim Fatima Sheikh said, "We want justice for the youth and kids who lost their lives during the post-Godhra riots."

People who lost their kith and kin during the riots still feel the pain of losing their loved ones, she added.
