Gujarat Police: Minister helped in burning Muslims

leave a comment »

The SIT, appointed by the Supreme Court for fresh probe into relatively gruesome 10 incidents of massacres during the 2002 riots, had zeroed in on  Mayaben Kodnani (Minister of State for Women’s Welfare) and Jaideep Patel (State Vishwa Hindu Parishad general secretary) apparently because of their mobile phone records which showed their presence in close proximity of the scene of the massacres in Naroda-Patiya and Naroda Gaam, both within the Assembly constituency of Ms. Kodnani.

The same mobile phone records show the movements of the responsible police officers in the reverse direction. The phone records showed that the then in charge of the Naroda area, Deputy Police Commissioner (Zone V), R.J. Savani, moved away from the scene of the crime allegedly after receiving a call from Mr. Patel and did not return to the station of his duty till late in the evening of the fateful day on February 28, 2002, when most parts of Gujarat were burning in response to a “bandh call” given by the VHP in the aftermath of the Godhra train carnage the previous day

The mobile phone call records were collected by the former Deputy Commissioner of Police, Rahul Sharma, who was briefly heading the crime branch police team investigating into the Naroda-Patiya and the Gulberg Society massacres. He had collected the details from the then two mobile telephone service providers in Gujarat.

The phone details reportedly helped the SIT to tighten the screws on Ms. Kodnani and Mr. Patel who were forced to approach the Ahmedabad sessions court for anticipatory bail.
