Gujarat riots: Supreme Court rejects petition filed by Zakia Jafri, wife of Ehsan Jafri.

New Delhi:

‘Satyamev Jayate’ was the unanimous reaction of BJP leaders on Friday after the Supreme Court upheld SIT’s right word to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and 63 others during the 2002 Gujarat riots when he was chief minister of the state, and rejected a plea by Zakia, the wife of Congress leader Ehsan Jafri, alleging a larger conspiracy.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur said: “Satyamev Jayate! SIT) nominated by SC on post-Godhra violence in Gujarat. Supreme Court says petition is without merit.” “Satyamev Jayate” (truth alone triumphs) was how another Union minister, Smriti Irani, put it, while party spokesperson Sambit Patra also tweeted the same expression.

BJP Secretary Y Satya Kumar claimed Congress’ latest attempt to slander PM Modi fell flat and justice prevailed citing Supreme Court observation that Zakia Jafri’s appeal was baseless and deserved to be dismissed.

Raising the curtains on the offer to reopen the inquest, a bench headed by Judge AM Khanwilkar said the evidence gathered during the inquest does not “give rise to strong or serious suspicions regarding the outbreak of ‘wider criminal conspiracy at the highest level’ for causing mass violence against Muslims.

The bench, which also includes Justices Dinesh Maheshwari and CT Ravikumar, found Zakia Jafri’s plea to be without merit. He referred to “the sneaky boil-the-pot scheme, obviously, for later design” and noted that anyone involved in “such abuse of process must be in the dock and proceed according to law.”
