SIT had summoned Modi to remain present before him tomorrow in connection with the complaint of Jakia Jaffery, wife of slain former MP Eshan Jaffery, in the Gulburg society riot case.

The SIT has not received any communication from the chief minister till this evening.

"There is no response from Modi as yet," SIT chief R K Raghavan told PTI.

The Supreme Court had on April 27 last year asked the SIT to inquire into Zakia's complaint where she alleged Modi and 62 others, including his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats aided and abetted the riots which left over 1,000 people dead.

The former MP was killed along with 69 others by a mob at Gulburg society in February 2002.
