The Election Commission is likely to look into the issue of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's speech justifying the killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh on Thursday.

Commission is understood to have received the report from the Surat Collector late last night and might consider it, sources said.

Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswamy said on Wednesday in Surat that the poll panel would take a decision on the speech of the Chief Minister after it received the report from the Surat Collector.

He had said that the news had appeared in media but the commission would decide on what to do only after receiving the report of the district collector.

Modi at a public meeting at Magrol had justified the killing of Soharabuddin in an encounter and said such elements will be dealt in the same manner in the state.
