The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a plea questioning the clean chit given to BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in its probe in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots.

A bench comprising justices HL Dattu and SA Bobde also declined the plea for reconstituting the SIT involving retired judges of the apex court, including a person from the minority community.

"Reconstitution of SIT at this stage is not good," the bench said, referring the plea questioning the SIT clean chit given to BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate.

After the bench's remark, advocate Fatima A, who had filed the petition, decided to withdraw it which was allowed.
