Ahmedabad: The Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing the 2002 Gulburg society riot case on Tuesday told a Special Court here that it would submit its reports to the appropriate magisterial court as directed by Supreme Court.

The statement was made by Investigating Officer in the case of Himanshu Shukla in a written reply to the notice issued by the court last week, while hearing an application by some of the riots victim seeking directions for SIT to submit all its reports related to Gulburg case to the special court.

Public Prosecutor R C Kodekar after submitting Shukla's letter to Judge B J Dhandha said that the Supreme Court had directed SIT to submit all the reports before a competent magisterial court.
 
Advocate S M Vora representing the riot victims objected to SIT's statement and sought to file written objections with regard to Shukla's letter.

The court has scheduled the next hearing to hear arguments by Vora in the case on November 9.

The Supreme Court on September 12 had refused to pass any order on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's alleged inaction to contain the 2002 Gujarat riots after the Godhra carnage, as claimed by Zakia Jaffery, a victim of Gulburg society, and referred the matter to the concerned magistrate in Ahmedabad for a decision.
