Ahmedabad: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) that investigated the Godhra train burning incident on Tuesday indicated that it may go in for an appeal against the acquittal of the main accused and 62 others in the case.

SIT Head R K Raghavan said if the SIT is convinced that there is evidence, they may proceed further for an appeal but that is ‘too early, too premature (to say now)’.

He said he have a mixed opinion on the judgement. "I am satisfied with the Godhra train burning verdict, but I am pained as so many lives were lost due to the incident," he said.

The SIT was appointed by the Supreme Court to further investigate the Godhra train carnage and eight other important post-Godhra riot cases on March 26, 2008.
