The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the post—Godhra 2002 riots in Gujarat filed its final report before a local court on Wednesday but there was no official confirmation whether it had closed the cases against Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

TV channels reported tonight that Modi got relief in the SIT report which, they said, has not found any evidence of Chief Minister aiding and abetting the riots following a complaint against him and 62 others by Zakia Jaffri demanding his prosecution. However, there was no official confirmation and no SIT official was available for comment.

The report was submitted in a sealed envelope by SIT officials in a magisterial court here as directed by the Supreme court, sources in the court said. The magistrate has to now take cognisance of the report.
