New Delhi: A metropolitan court on Tuesday disallowed Zakia Jafri from filing a protest petition challenging the closure report of the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) which gave a clean chit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Gulburg Society massacre case during 2002 riots.

Earlier, the same court had directed Zakia to either inform the court about the status of the Special Leave Petition (SLP) she had filed in the Supreme Court or file a protest petition by November 7 which she failed to do.

Zakia, wife of former Congress MP Ehsan Zafri who was killed by a mob in Gulburg Society during 2002 riots, had sought more time to file the protest petition on the ground that her plea seeking clarification on certain issues has been pending with the Supreme Court.
