Ahmedabad: The SIT on Tuesday submitted a voluminous set of documents related to its final report filed earlier in a case of complaint by Zakia Jaffery against Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others, in a local court.

The Special Investigation Team had submitted its final report as per the direction of the Supreme Court in the metropolitan court here on February 8.

The final report is believed to have given clean chit to Modi and others.

However with the report, they had not given all the related documents, pertaining to the complaint by Jaffery, wife of former Congress MP Eshan Jaffery, who was killed in
the 2002 riots.

The court had granted them time till March 15 to submit all the case-related documents.

Today, SIT officer Himanshu Shukla and its advocate R S Jamuar came to the court of magistrate M S Bhatt and submitted five big trunks, loaded with documents, which contain the entire work done by the SIT on the complaint by Jaffery, sources said.

The material, submitted by the SIT, includes statements of victims, accused, all the police and state government officials interrogated by it, including that of Modi.

"With the submission of this material, the work of SIT is over," a source in the SIT said, adding that now it is up to the court to take a decision on the issue.

The apex court had, on September 12, 2011, directed the SIT to forward a final report, along with the entire material collected by the SIT, to the court.
Complainant Zakia and others working for riot victims, had demanded the copy of the report, but the court had said that it will decide on their application after the SIT submits
its full report.

The Supreme Court had earlier also directed the local court that it will deal with the matter in accordance with the law relating to the trial of the accused, named in the report.

"However, at this juncture, we deem it necessary to emphasise that if for any stated reason, the SIT opines in its report, to be submitted in terms of this order, that there is no sufficient evidence or reasonable grounds for proceeding against any person named in the complaint, dated June, 8, 2006, before taking a final decision on such 'closure' report.

 The Court shall issue notice to the complainant and make available to her copies of the statements of the witnesses, other related documents and the investigation report strictly in accordance with law," the Supreme Court had further said in its September 12 order.
