Court to Take Call on Closure Report: SIT Chief
send via whatsapp
Terming its probe as a "good job", chief of the Supreme Court-appointed SIT R K Raghavan today said closure was recommended in post-Godhra Gulberg massacre case as the team could not find evidence against the people named in the petition including Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

"We have filed the report saying no evidence on the contents of a particular petition was available and recommended the closure," Raghavan told reporters.

When asked whether this meant that all the persons named in the petition which includes Modi are now "off the hook", Raghavan said, "I don't say that. It is for the court to decide. I am not the master. Court has to take a view."

He said court has started initial proceedings by directing the team to provide all the material to complainant Zakia Jafri, widow of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri who was among 69 persons killed in the Gulberg society carnage.

Raghavan said the material would be provided within a month after which the complainant could move to court and seek further directives.

On the reactions of activists including Teesta Seetalvad terming the report as disappointment, he said, "It is their perception and they are entitled to hold that perception".

About the divergent views taken by the amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran and his team, former CBI Director Raghavan said "it was a fact" but refused to go into further details.

He said court would review all the material submitted by them and would take a point of view.

When asked whether he was satisfied with the probe, he said, "Absolutely. I am very happy the way our officers have worked. They are the men of integrity and very hard workers. They have done a good job. We told facts to the court."

>  ....".unlike SIT, which has THOROUGHLY investigated under the auspices of SC" .Kautilya.....

 How RKRaghavan , who had lost all the 5 biological senses ( except the the 6th CLEAN-CHIT sense, while under going the process of gold coating& polishing on behalf of Modi  ), could have THOUROUHLY INVESTIGATED, under the auspices of JUSTICE JAIN'S BENCH ( please do not insult the SUPREME COURT by referring  Justice Jain's Bench as  SC) ? Will any sensible human being , including PERHAPS KAUTALYIA,  belieive that a BLIND MAN  can testify the existence and location of the HIMALAYAN MOUNTAIN?.   Moreover, Justice jain is either TOO BUSY or deliberately wants to close his eyes to 'LOOK INTO THE FACTS " ( running into tens of thousands of pages of documents) presented by RKRaghavan in whom Modi has cent percent TRUST, on account of the investment of half of Gujarat's wealth  on Raghavan ( the other half on NANAVATI).

Come down on PLANET EARTH , if your WASHINGTON DC is on some alien place , which could be the place called 'THE DARKEST HELL"

....divergent views taken by the amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran

Sickulars forget that Amicus is just putting forth his views and has no investigating capacity unlike SIT, which has thoroughly investigated under the auspices of SC. His comments were incorporated and addressed in the final report as per SC's directions. 

The weight of Amicus can be guaged by the following words: 

Ramdev was evicted on Chidambaram's word: Amicus Rajiv Dhawan

Did the SC or prosecution arrest Chidu or start proceedings based on his views? It was duly noted and in absence of any trail of evidence, just remained a footnote.
