SIT chief defends clean chit to Narendra Modi

last updated on April 11, 2012 at 2:45 am Ibnlive

The Special Investigation Team, appointed by the Supreme Court to probe into the 2002 Gujarat riots case, has given a clean chit to Chief Minister Narendra Modi. While the report has come as a reprieve for Modi, the activists campaigning for justice for riot victims have called it unfortunate.

The man facing the heat is former Central Bureau of Investigation chief, R K Raghavan, who headed the SIT probe into the riots.

Speaking exclusively to IBN18 Editor-in-Chief Rajdeep Sardesai, Raghavan defended his report, saying he welcomed any criticism as he knew that he had been honest in his job.
He said that everyone was entitled to his or her own opinion on his report, but the ultimate decision on it was supposed to be taken by the court, adding that it was not the end of the road. Watch more in this story.
