The Justice GT Nanavati panel on Thursday submitted the first part of its report on the Sabarmati Express train burning at Godhra and the riots that followed in 2002 in Gujarat in which at least 1,100 people were killed, official sources said.

According to the sources, the report was submitted to the office of Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the presence of Home Minister Amit Shah.

The commission's final report is yet to come. The details of the report are not known.

The two-member Nanavati Commission investigated the February 2002 Godhra train burning that killed 59 Hindus and the subsequent communal riots that swept the state. It examined over 1,000 witnesses over six years.
