Gujarat riot: Final report presented in assembly, PM Modi gets clean chit

Ahmedabad: For a long time, the Nanavati Commission has given a clean chit to the government led by the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 riots in Gujarat. More than 1000 people died in these riots, most of them from the minority community. State Home Minister Pradeep Singh Jadeja presented the report of the Commission in the House. This report has been tabled in the House five years after it was handed over to the then government. The Commission, in its report of more than 1,500 pages, said that no such evidence was found that any state minister had instigated or instigated the attacks. It said that in some places the police were ineffective in controlling the crowd as they did not have a sufficient number of policemen or were not well armed with weapons.

The Commission said on some incidents of communal riots in Ahmedabad city, "The police did not show the strength, readiness to control the riots which were necessary." The Nanavati Commission has recommended investigation or action against the guilty police officers. Former Supreme Court judge (retired) GT Nanavati and former Gujarat High Court judge (retired) Akshay Mehta submitted their final report on the 2002 riots to Anandiben Patel, the then chief minister of the state in 2014.

At the same time, it is being said that on 27 February 2002, riots broke out all over Gujarat in response to the incident of burning 59 karsevaks on the Sabarmati Express in Godhra. To investigate this, on 3 March 2002, the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi set up a commission headed by retired Supreme Court Justice GT Nanavati. Justice KG Shah was the second member of the commission. After Shah's death in 2009, Akshay Mehta was made a member.
