    Setback for Zakia in fight against clean chit to Narendra Modi

    AHMEDABAD: The Supreme Court-appointed SIT and chief minister Narendra Modi got a major relief on Tuesday. A magisterial court rejected the plea of Zakia Jafri, whose husband and former MP Eshan Jafri was killed in the 2002 Gujarat anti-Muslim pogrom, to file a protest petition against clean chit to Modi and others in connection with the massacre.

    Metropolitan magistrate B J Ganatra rejected Zakia's right to object to SIT's closure report by filing a petition, after she failed to file one despite repeated adjournments.

    n Tuesday, the magistrate rejected her plea which was filed on November 23 seeking more time to file the protest petition on the grounds that she has moved the SC with a clarification about the scope of SIT's investigation. Ganatra observed that it was limited to the Gulbarg Society massacre in which Eshan Jafri was killed. She asked the magistrate to give her time to file the application till the apex court decides the issue.

    The magistrate rejected the plea saying that the finalization of the issue was not under Zakia's control. "The complainant cannot be given unlimited time in filing such a petition for the kind of reasons put forth by her,'' the court said, while observing that the complainant was granted time more than once in the past, but she made undue delay.

    The magistrate maintained that Zakia would have a right to make an oral submission during proceedings over the closure report. Her counsel, S M Vora, expressed his reservations over this order and submitted to the court that the SC is to hear Zakia's special leave petition on December 3 and the court ought to have waited till then at very least. The next hearing on the closure report is on December 5......................

    One will have to wait for the Supreme Court over this order till the SC hears Zakia's special leave petition.

    There has to be a quick closure to this case for the sake of both the sides. This cannot drag on and on.

    On NDTV, I heard the lawyer for the SIT blaming the Zakia family and their lawyers trying to drag the case on one pretext or the other.

    It is a politically backed case with a political motive behind it, whether Modi is guilty or not, it's an over stretched case, Zakia herself is unaware that she has become a political tool in all this. They will keep stretching it to the breaking point.

    Well, that is how the lawyers make their living or else they would also be eligible for direct cash transfers that is being aimed at the BPL chaps.

    Same is with Teesta Steelabad and her ways. I believe she is also a lawyer.

    @Ray, Sir unfortunately that is the way the system has turned out to be. It is in nobody's interest to change the system, except the poor fellow who gets caught in the web.

    we all know who is the present CJI. On 3rd Dec I will not be surprised with what comes out of SC. SC seems to be taking dictations from Law Minister.
