The court upheld the Ahmedabad Metropolitan Magistrate’s decision to accept the final SIT report dated February 8, 2012 “as is” and dismiss the protest petition filed by Jafri.

The SIT said, “The information or material has gone by the logic of being incorrect and the same remains unconfirmed”.

“In this, the material collected during the course of investigation does not give rise to strong or serious suspicion with respect to the conspiracy of larger criminal conspiracy at the highest level to carry out mass violence across the State against the minority community, indicating the involvement of the designated perpetrators. gives. And the meeting of their minds at some stage in that regard,” it said.

The bench ruled that “the question of further investigation arises only on the availability of new material/information in respect of the allegation of larger conspiracy at the highest level, which does not come to the fore in this case”.

The court praised the SIT for doing its job “with honesty, fairness and impartiality” and expressed strong displeasure over Jafri’s arguments, which it said, “to the extent of undermining the integrity and integrity of the members of the SIT” and “Questioning the Wisdom” of this Court”.

The court also pointed to “the joint effort of disgruntled officials of the State of Gujarat as well as others … to create sensation by making revelations which were false to their own knowledge. Their claims after a thorough investigation by the SIT.” The lie was completely exposed.

It noted that “fundamentally, for the past 16 years the present course of action has been followed … to boil the pot, apparently, to the inverted design … to all those involved in such abuse of the process.” needs to be in court and proceed accordingly. With the law”.

The bench said, “The allegations of larger conspiracy at the highest level… are based on alleged statements made by the then Chief Minister in an official meeting (on February 27, 2002 in Gandhinagar) while addressing the DGP, the then Chief Secretary and others of the state. Allow senior officials to vent the Hindu outrage over minorities in the wake of the Godhra incident.

In its plea, the petitioner relied on the statements of police officers Sanjiv Bhatt, who claimed to have attended the meeting, and RB Sreekumar and former minister Haren Pandya, but the SIT concluded that “the claims of the persons concerned are false and fictitious.” is conceived”, the court said.

“The SIT has recorded its opinion after a thorough investigation that neither Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt nor Mr. Haren Pandya was present in the said meeting. Similarly, Mr. RB Sreekumar also had no personal information as he did not attend the said meeting. Besides, Mr. RB Sreekumar was a disgruntled officer,” the apex court said.

It said: “On such a false claim, a structure of larger criminal conspiracy has been created at the highest level. The same stand collapsed like a pack of cards, (in) after a thorough investigation by the SIT.

On allegations of inaction by the state, the court said that the SIT had collected “material indicating the amount of hard work and planning of the state functionaries concerned in an effort to control the spontaneously evolving situation of mass violence across the state”.

It stated that the state “needed to be replenished with central forces/army despite constraint of administration including inadequate state police force, who were called upon without wasting time and to maintain peace in public by the then chief minister”. Repeated appeals were made”. ,

But, it said, “no such link is emerging, much less … exposed and established in any of the nine cases”.

“We would be required to question the wisdom of this Court in order to accept the contention of the appellant and to hold that the Godhra incident on 27.02.2002 was also the result of an alleged larger criminal conspiracy. Such a view would be absurd,” The bench said.

“No material has come to the fore to indicate that there was a failure on the part of the Intelligence Department to collect the information and it was a willful act on the part of the State Government officials,” the court said.
