AHMEDABAD: The Jansangharsha Manch, representing the 2002 Gujarat riot victims before the G.T. Nanavati and K.G. Shah judicial commission, on Tuesday reiterated its demand to summon Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others for cross-examination.
Its advocate Mukul Sinha submitted a fresh application after the State government failed to submit its own analysis of the two compact discs carrying mobile numbers of calls made to and from phones allegedly showing their proximity to the sites of the major incidents, particularly Naroda-Patiya and Gulberg Society in Ahmedabad.
A decision on the application is expected to be taken at the next sitting on November 30.
The government pleader, who twice earlier sought adjournments of the hearing seeking time to prepare an analysis to counter the details submitted by the Manch, again failed to present it on Tuesday.
Dr. Sinha argued that in view of the government’s failure to counter his analysis, his report, which was earlier accepted as evidence by the commission, should be treated as final and on its basis Mr. Narendra Modi, the then Minister of State for Home Gordhan Jhadafiya and others should be summoned for cross-examination.
