Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is likely to be questioned by the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team, probing the 2002 riots, on March 27, SIT sources said on Wednesday.

Confusion prevailed over the appearance of Modi before the SIT with the panel chief saying he would appear on March 21. But Modi, in an open letter, claimed he was not summoned on the date.

Sources on Wednesday said he is likely to be questioned on March 27. However, SIT Chief R K Raghavan refused to comment on the date.

"It is a privilege communication between the SIT and the witness and I cannot comment on this," he said.

SIT has summoned Modi to depose in connection with a complaint of Zakia Jaffery, widow of former Congress MP Eshan Jaffery who was killed in Gulburg society riot case of 2002 along with 69 others.
