Wireless messages dent SIT claim on Modi

Extracts show violence before and during funeral processions of kar sevaks

In its closure report submitted to the trial court, the Special Investigation Team that probed Zakia Jafri’s complaint against Narendra Modi and 58 others said there was no evidence to prove that the Chief Minister had sent the bodies of the 2002 Godhra victims to Ahmedabad with a view to parading them before the public.

The SIT quoted Ahmedabad Police Commissioner P.C. Pande to back its claim that there was no parading of the bodies.

Not just this. Anyone reading the report would conclude that peace had prevailed through the time the bodies were transported from Godhra to the Sola Civil Hospital on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, and later too, when the bodies were handed over to the next of kin. There is no mention in the closure report of the charged atmosphere in the hospital prior to the arrival of the bodies in the early hours of February 28, 2002. Nor does the report indicate anywhere that huge, violent crowds accompanied the funeral processions of the victims; indeed that the processions became the trigger for the anti-Muslim violence that rocked the city and State in the Godhra aftermath.

The real story emerges in a series of desperate wireless messages sent out by police and intelligence field staff positioned at the Sola Civil Hospital and other locations on February 27 and 28, 2002. The wireless extracts, annexed to a protest petition filed against the SIT’s closure report by Ms. Jafri in a local court, show the following. One, there was a lot of anxiety over the Modi administration’s decision to send the bodies to Ahmedabad. Two, there were repeated pleas for bandobast at the hospital where crowds had gathered in anticipation of the arrival of the bodies. Three, there were attacks on Muslims by crowds accompanying the funeral processions which set the stage for the large-scale violence that followed.

At 12.30 p.m. on February 27, that is just hours after the Godhra train carnage, a State Intelligence Bureau (SIB) officer sent a fax communication to his headquarters saying there were reports that bodies of the kar sevaks were going to be sent to Ahmedabad. He alerted: “So communal violence will occur in the city of Ahmedabad; so take preventive action.”

The warning was repeated in another message which added that kar sevaks were threatening retaliatory violence in explosive interviews given to a TV station in Godhra. In the early hours of February 28, there were two messages (1.51 a.m. and 1.59 a.m.) from a police van stationed at the Sola Civil Hospital, urging “immediate protection from Special Reserve Police platoons and the presence of DCP Zone 1.”

At 2.44 a.m., a message said the motorcade carrying the bodies had reached the hospital. Another message at 4 a.m. said a mob comprising 3,000 swayamsevaks (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteers) had gathered at the hospital. At 7.14 a.m., the police van again relayed the message that a large mob had assembled at the hospital. Three minutes later, a message said a mob of 500 was holding up the traffic.

At 11.55 a.m., there was a message saying “the hindu mob” had become violent and had set a vehicle on fire and was “indulging in arson on the highway.” Another message at the same time said, “Sayyed Saheb, the Protocol Officer” had informed that riots had started in the hospital. A further message said mobs had surrounded the hospital staff.

There were specific messages from the field about crowds of 5,000-6,000 taking the bodies out in funeral processions. A message at 11. 58 a.m. said: “Amrajwadi-1 informed that 10 dead bodies have been taken for cremation ceremony from Ramol Janatanagar to Hatkeshwar Cremation Centre with crowd of 5 to 6 thousand.” Another message said: “Funeral procession allowed at Khedbrahma town in Sabarkantha district. Situation tense, 2 Muslims stabbed at Khedbrahma.”

There was also a message about 150 Bajrang Dal members from Ayodhya reaching Khedbrahma.

The SIT’s closure report acknowledged that the bodies of kar sevaks had been handed over to the VHP’s Jaydeep Patel but it placed the blame for the decision on M.L. Nalvaya, the local executive magistrate, and said he had issued a letter to Mr. Patel where he mentioned that 54 bodies were being sent with him on five trucks.

The SIT said the five trucks carrying the bodies reached the Sola Civil Hospital between 3.30 a.m. and 4 a.m. on February 28, and that Mr. Patel handed over the letter from the executive magistrate to the Deputy Collector who was waiting at the hospital with the Collector and other officials.

The SIT blandly recorded that “the relatives of the persons who had died at the Godhra carnage were also present in the hospital. Accordingly, 35 persons were identified and their bodies handed over to their relatives …”

The SIT denied that there had been any parading of bodies, and quoted Mr. Pande to back its claim: “Shri P.C. Pande, the then CP, Ahmedabad city has stated that there had been no parading of dead bodies inasmuch as the trucks carrying the dead bodies under police escort reached Ahmedabad city between 0330 hrs to 0400 hrs on 28.02.2002 which means they had started from Godhra at least three hrs earlier and as such there was no one to see them on the highway at dead of night. Shri Pande has also stated that in Ahmedabad city, the dead bodies were kept in Sola Civil Hospital situated on the outskirts of the city and that most of the dead bodies were handed over to their relations after proper documentation by 28.02.2008 morning.”

As for the funeral processions, the SIT said: “… the dead bodies were moved in vehicles and not by foot as the same would have escalated the tension … R.J. Savani (Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone V) succeeded in persuading the relatives and well-wishers of the deceased to take each body in a vehicle and the funeral procession was guarded by the police up to Hatkeshwar cremation ground … The funeral was over by 1400hrs and the crowd which had gathered on the highway dispersed thereafter.”

No mention of the unrest in the hospital. No mention of arson by protestors. And no mention of the huge crowds that accompanied the funeral processions.

2002 -1984 = 18 years
2012-2002 = 10 years

Prior to 2002 there were 16 years to get justice of 1984 but it did
happen. But of 2002, it got verdict within 10 years and maximum
culprits are in jail but its not the same of 1984.

Its governace and intention of the govt & also to make investigation
which makes victim's life miserable.

Some crap which does not give any picture at all..How will Chief
Minister of state know what is being talked on Police WALKIE TALKIE..
why such a misleading headline.. Is the indian media under tremendous
pressure to show Modi and BJP in bad light.. almost everyone i talk to
who reads english print and listens to english news channel has an
opinion that Media has been extremely biased.. Hindu usually gives
both side of the story, but in this CRAP it has just covered one sided
story and not even mentioned once that Trial court and Supreme COurt
did not find even an IOTA of criminality against Modi.. If anything
that happens in the state is responsibility of CM then on same
criteria MMS should have been hanged multiple times in past 9 years

Assuming that all the facts about the wireless messages are true... how
does it implicate Mr. Modi?? why dont' you also put up the facts about
the no. of police personnel deployed by the Guj administration
anticipating the riots? why dont you put up details about the no. of
bullets that were fired by the police to control the mobs and the
rioters during the course of the riots? why dont you put up details
about Mr. Modi's call for the army, their arrival and the army staging
a flag march to control the riots??

all these facts when presented to the public without any discrimination
will then let the public make an informed judgement.

Serious doubts have time & again been raised on the integrity of the
SIT and this adds to those doubts. The fact is there was arson during
the procession & after the procession of dead bodies, there were 2000
people killed, an ex-MLA's family was burnt alive,desperate cries for
help were not heeded. If the CM isn't responsible for maintenance of
Law & Order, who is? Why this desperate attempt at giving clean chit
to Mr. Modi? Who is penning the finding for the SIT? The nation is
awaiting answers even 11 long years after the carnage - we don't need
another cover-up like in case of Srikrishna commission of Mumbai riots
fame or Nanavati commission of the Anti-sikh riots fame.

articles for that...for 10 years there is nothing considering the
history of Gujrat where every alternate years during congress rule there
is problem. why don;t you post what happened to Kar Sewaks...who is
guilty? what happens if your son or daughter would have been in the
train.... Life of Kar Sewaks are not life???

This is a prejudiced article in bad taste and dents my faith in The
Hindu, which I regarded as one of the last few balanced newspapers.

The unfortunate truth of the media in this country today is that it
has turned into an cartel, interested only in keeping the status quo
that's held us back as a country for 65 years.
Trust and Credibility for a newspaper or a TV channel is hard earned
and easily lost, the BBC is a case in point. Despite this article, the
hindu is the closest thing we have, dont throw it away!

Why should i believe the information provided by Ms. Jafri as the gospel truth. In the cirlce of Ms. Jafri is Ms. Setalvad...who is known for doctoring and tutoring witnesses. All this could be manufactured evidence...

I expect...a higher standard from 'The Hindu'. If these wirless messages were already existing ...why were they not submitted by Ms. Jafri earlier...She has submitted numerous petitions earlier...

Recall the SIT is under the Supreme Court supervision. The SIT has officers who have appointed by Supreme Court and are impeccable integrity. I find it hard to believe that they did not go thro Police Messages and faxes...

this is just manufactured evidence..by the Teestha Team (i do not say Jafri Team). They know court will take time to scrutinize it and eventually throw them out...but the damage in the public is done....

The article has not vindicated the author's very first statement.She has
not produced any evidence suggesting that Modi facilitated parading of
dead bodies.On the contrary,the dead bodies were transported roughly just
after midnight.This was to minimise the tension. Vidya perhaps would have
preferred a very quiet cremation/burial.This also would have triggered
big riot.If this has happened,even then Modi would have been taken to
task.She is referring to a crowd of 5000-6000.Everybody knows that even a
single dead body[in the case of a murder] attracts huge crowd. No riot
has ever been probed as thoroughly as the Gujarat riots.The anti-Modi
forces are frustrated. Modi's political opponents have huge resources to
carry on the hate campaign against Modi. Those who can not defeat him in
the polls try other means.Vidya's article will help them.

This is almost directly out of Zakia's petition. The author should try reading the the messages in cronological order. The India today article did not give it in that order. The cronological order shows that its was indeed spontaneous. And also note that, most of the messages are warnings. Besides, we do not know if these are all the messages. Where did these messages com from? Zakia's petition!! Obviously she will not use all the available messages. And inspite of all these messages, the SIT formed its opinion. What are the messages that have not been included in the petition? Why were they not included?

Your newspaper is doing a great service by analysing the SIT report and verifying it
with other evidences to bring out the gaping holes in the report. Why the SIT report
gave a clean chit to Mr.Modi inspite of some compelling evidences is a mystery. The SC
must reject the closure report and order fresh probe.

from:  Hariharan
Posted on: Apr 18, 2013 at 12:30 IST

Amazing conclusion by the author here.Lets look at the facts stated in
this article:
1.SIT in its report said the bodies were borught from Godhra to
Ahemadabad hoispital at dead of the night between 3.00 to 4.00 a.m and
there was no procession. Intel reports quoted here show bodies brought
in the night and also show no eveidence to say there was a procession
when bodies were transported from Godhra to Ahmedabad.
2. Intel reports here say there was mobs in the Hospital in Ahmedabad.
Reports again dont sayd mobs accompanies the bodies till they were
brought to the hospital
3. Intel reports say there were huge mobs and bodies taken in a
procession from the hospital in Ahmedabad for the funeral! Nowhere do
we read here SIT said there was no procession post bodies being handed
over to families in Ahmedabad hospital! Yet Hindu concludes SIT
wrongly said no procession or mobs when bodies brought from Godhra to
Ahmedabad.

from:  Avinash
Posted on: Apr 18, 2013 at 12:27 IST

The aftermath of Godhra were not isolated murders that happened in secrets which could be covered up. it was five thousand or more killers witnessed by the police and instigated by the politicians who went on to kill muslim infants and women. this mob who tore open the bellies of pregnant women to pull out the unborn infant and burned it just because they are muslims. can these killers be considered as human beings?

After exhausting all methods to deride modi, Vidya is using her tricks of the trade to demean the SIT which gave clean chit to Modi. What new evidence does these wireless messages offer expect for a commentary of what happened?

If people die out of no reason, there is always anxiety and pity and out of emotions huge group of people join/come to pay homage. There were 10,000 people gathered in Chennai Airport when body of Major Saravanan (killed in kargil war) was brought. The same happened during the Delhi Gangrape case as well.

What does she want the Govt/CM to do? By her own admission, only 2 people were stabbed until the bodies were handed over and taken away. So what is/Who is at guilt??

Please do not invent/make baseless allegations which do not stand as evidence in court of law and try the case through media.

from:  Vijay
Posted on: Apr 18, 2013 at 11:34 IST

There has always been a lack of dedication and sincerity in the law enforcing agencies in concluding this 2002 Godhra riot cases as well as the fake encounters involving many top Police and Intelligence Officials, Ministers and bureaucrats of Gujarat and elsewhere.
Even the State's opposition parties and those at Centre did not do anything worthwhile in delivering justice.
People like the Police Commissioner PC Pande gets away so easily by giving false and deceitful statements in Courts to save his masters and also his own skin. The SIT also can get away by diluting the case with their omissions and commissions, to save some individuals.
Now Supreme Court of India, the world is watching you. It is in your hands to deliver justice. Though all those dead long back cannot come back by your judgement, but those alive and have been suffering due to the callousness of the authorities will surely get some relief by the justice, which we all know what it should be.

Revelation of the messages sent out by the state police & intelligence officials on ground to their higher-ups and the total ignorance of the police chief on the happenings in and around Ahmedabad forces one to take a relook at the role of the state machinery.
Surprisingly the SIT seems to have overlooked these aspects and have given a clean chit. A quick unbiased trial on Zakia's petition will reveal the hidden truth.

What does the author want to prove? That the dead were brought to
Ahmedabad to provoke a riot? Given the background the riots would have
broken out any way irrespective of the timing of handing over of dead
bodies to victims' families. What is important is to critically
analyse whether the administration took all the necessary steps to
contain the violence once it broke out and whether they had
deliberately let it spread. The SIT, as I understand was examining the
role of the Chief Minister if any in holding back the police or administration from acting decisively to curb the violence. If these
are the facts/wireless communications that the SIT relied upon as
enumerated in this article, then the SIT was right in its conclusions!

Isn't it strange, when it comes to Modi, a reputed news paper like Hindu
can't resist taking sides even in news reports. Of-course there were
tensions, and probably thats why the bodies were transported and handed
over to relatives past midnight. Even stranger is, all news papers made
so much of hue-n-cry over not handing over Afzal's body for last rites
to the family. Double standards, I say.

Thanks Hindu for substantiating the point that the SIT closure report was a mere farce. This news article doesn't point fingers at Mr. Modi or the then state government but it does enough to show that the SIT closure report did indeed hide facts. Why an 'independent' SIT had to hide facts is a serious question. The SIT chief Mr. Raghavan must answer this.

And my salute to Ms. Zafri for fighting a lone and persistent battle against a very powerful establishment. Hope she gets justice.

This impartial statement of events shows the politician / policement nexus. Politicians who try to get popular using crude and condemnable provactive, communal violence should be as much held guilty as the perpetrators-whether they had a direct hand or not.

Also one needs to go the root cause of the decay of our state police force - that of nepotism, political interference or influence and corruption in recruitment from the beat constable level and perhaps right upto the top.

The clamour for independent CBI at the top must also in the same breath have implication for the independence of law enforcement authority at the state level - viz. Allow them to function without fear or favour and hold them accountable with recourse to swift legal and justice system in case of violations and excesses.

The core committee members of all political parties must be legally held jointly and severally accountable with punitive fines and community service for inaction or delay.

There is nothing new in this. Whole India knows who actually was
responsible for the riots. Muslims are told to their face that they
would meet the same fate if they don't lower down their voice. Mr Modi
is just taking advantage of potholes in Indian Judicial System. Modi
obviously knows how judiciary works and because he's head of the
state, he uses all resources to destroy credibility of witnesses. Mr
Modi has become torch bearers of all hindu extremists today. There is
a whole propaganda going on in this country. Muslims are asked to
prove their loyalty to this country by accepting Modi. This is irony!!

What is The Hindu's special antagonism towards Modi? Are you investigating every such incident with such brazen enmity towards any other politician? Why are you afraid of Modi becoming the Prime Minister? Are you frightened of a corruption-free Central Government? Has Ram's departure meant you are ready to embrace and promote corrupt politicians? I think you should consider what is most important for the country's economic progress. Modi appears to be the only man capable of providing good governance who did not whine about the unfair treatment of his State, as if other non-Congress States were treated fairly. Modi did his job with what he had, and he has done much better than any other Chief Minister. He does not have to prove to you or any one else that his State is
perfect. It is enough that he has done a much better job than any Congress or other UPA Chief Minister. The people will be the judge of that despite the rantings of a despicable media that is running amok.

At 12.30 p.m. on February 27, that is just hours after the Godhra train carnage, a State Intelligence Bureau (SIB) officer sent a fax communication to his headquarters saying there were reports that bodies of the kar sevaks were going to be sent to Ahmedabad. He alerted: “So communal violence will occur in the city of Ahmedabad; so take preventive action.”

Please let me know that why the message is not based on common sense of riots will erupt after killing 57 karsevaks but based on the decision of shifting the bodies to Ahmedabad.
