The Supreme Court appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) has summoned Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) general secretary Praveen Togadia to appear before it on April 19, for questioning in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riot cases. Reports confirm that Togadia has been summoned with regard to the complaint of Zakia Jaffery, wife of slain former MP Ehsan Jaffery, who was killed among the 69 in the Gulberg Society massacre on February 28, 2002. Zakia, in her complaint, alleged that Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi and 62 others, including his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats, aided and abetted the riots in the state. According to Zakia’s complaint, Togadia collaborated with the other accused in perpetration of violence in pursuance of the conspiracy. SIT also questioned Narendra Modi with regards to Zakia’s complaint for over nine hours on March 27.
