NEW DELHI: The fascist Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government has been given the clean chit in the 2002 Gujarat riots by the Nanavati Commission on Wednesday.
The commission’s report was tabled in the state Legislative Assembly.
Minister of State for Home Pradeepsinh Jadeja tabled the report in the House, five years after it was submitted to the then state government. In the report, it is mentioned that the post Godhra train burning riots were not organised.
Over 1,000 people, mainly of the Muslims, were killed in the riots, according to official estimates, but unofficial estimates had pegged the number much higher.
The commission was appointed in 2002 by the then state chief minister Narendra Modi to probe the riots, that took place after the burning of two coaches of the Sabarmati Express train near Godhra railway station.
