AHMEDABAD: A special SIT court is likely to pronounce the quantum of sentence tomorrow for the 24 convicted in the Gulberg Society massacre in which 69 persons including former Congress MP Ehsan Jafrey were killed during the 2002 Gujarat riots. The prosecution had sought nothing less than death sentence or jail term till death for all the convicts while the defence lawyers had contested it saying that the incident was spontaneous and there were enough provocations for it.
