Gujarat riots: FIR filed against Modi

india Updated: Jul 09, 2006 01:29 IST

More than four years after former Rajya Sabha member Ehsan Jaffri was hacked and burnt to death, his widow Zakia Jaffri has lodged an FIR against Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his Cabinet colleagues.

Former MP and a senior lawyer Ehsan Jaffri and 38 others were killed inside the Gulbarg Society on February 28, 2002 by nearly 8000-strong mob which has responded to the Gujarat bandh called by the VHP to protest the Godhra train inferno the previous day.

All the 19 houses in the Gulbarg Society were also ransacked and burnt by the mob out to avenge the killing of 58 kar sewaks in the Sabarmati Express fire at Godhra.
