The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday rejected allegations about Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's complicity in the Gulbarg Society carnage case and said matters related to the report filed by amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran had been dealt with by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in its "closure report".


Responding to queries in the wake of the Supreme Court-appointed SIT on Monday handing over its report on the Gulbarg Society carnage to complainant Zakia Jafri, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said the report had put everything on record.

Javadekar said the SIT had prepared its report after months of investigation.

"Ultimately, truth has prevailed," Javadekar said.

He rejected allegations about Modi's complicity in the wake of Ramachandran's report that the role of the Gujarat chief minister should be investigated. 

He said Modi was not guilty. "Whoever is responsible is getting punished," he said.

The SIT on Monday handed over its report on the Gulbarg Society carnage to Jafri.

The SIT report was handed over to Zakia in a local court in Ahmedabad and includes an independent report filed by amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran in the case.

Jafri's husband Ehsan Jafri, a former MP, was among 69 people killed in the Gulbarg society carnage.

Modi was among the persons accused by Zakia of alleged criminal conspiracy in the riots.
