Nanavati Panel’s Clean Chit To Modi On 2002 Gujarat Riots

Varanasi Lok Sabha Election

The final report of Nanavati-Mehta Commission, which was tabled in the Gujarat Assembly on Wednesday, gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 riots.

The report deals with post-Godhra train burning violence in which more than 1,000 people were killed in widespread communal riots across the state in 2002. The report mentioned that the riots were “not organised”.

The report said that it was alleged that Modi, who was then the Gujarat chief minister, went to Godhra to inspect the S6 coach and ‘destroy the evidence’, but the allegations were found to be baseless.

The commission’s report also refuted the allegations against Modi that he visited Godhra without informing anyone. The report said that his administration had information about it.

“I was personally reviewing the situation continuously by holding review meetings of the senior government and police officials responsible for maintaining law and order to ensure that normalcy is restored,” the report quoted Narendra Modi as saying.

The first part of the report was submitted in 2008 by the Nanavati-Mehta commission. It covered the Godhra train burning incident in which it had concluded that burning of the S-6 coach of Sabarmati Express near Godhra Railway Station was a “planned conspiracy”.

The first part also gave clean chit to the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi. (ANI)
