'Gujarat Riots Witnesses Not Tutored: SIT'

Nagendar Sharma in the Hindustan Times:

The Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing major cases of 2002 anti-Muslim Gujarat riots on Tuesday slammed reports that riots witnesses were tutored to give false evidence for exaggeration of the situation, by activists and organisations helping the victims.

The SIT rebuttal followed the alleged leak of its report recently, which was submitted to the Supreme Court in March. “The findings of the report have concentrated on the investigations into the cases and it was not our business to indulge in the blame game and level allegations,” a senior SIT official said.

...“I am answerable only to the Supreme Court. The alleged reported leaks appear to be inspired by dubious motives. I cannot confirm such claims. The act is highly condemnable,” Raghavan said.

And while I am yet to hear a detailed and impartial first person account of what exactly happened in Supreme Court , or what exactly it means, as per wires -- PTI and IANS -- the SC was apparently  "furious". It "disapproved" and "deplored" the alleged selective and distorted leaks and felt "betrayed" by them. It also cautioned the Gujarat government that it is "not entitled to quote or say anything relating to the report". 

"Whoever has done [selectively leaked the report] it, does not understand the SIT report," the court said. "It’s not akin to the the charge sheet submitted under Section 173 of Criminal Procedure Code. This does not have any evidentiary value."

That's about it.

No, not even a rap on the knuckles for any one else as far as this latest controversy is concerned. We can all now go back to our prejudices, conspiracy theories, biases, beliefs.
