Ahmedabad: The widow of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri today moved the Gujarat High Court challenging a lower court order giving a clean chit to Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others in connection with the 2002 riots.  

Zakia Jafri, whose husband was killed by a mob during the riot at Gulbarg Society here, along with an NGO, filed a criminal review petition in the HC demanding that Modi and 59 others be charged with criminal conspiracy with regards to the post-Godhra communal violence.

The NGO, Citizen for Justice and Peace (CPJ), is run by social activist Teesta Setalvad.

Zakia also prayed for rejection of the closure report of the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) submitted to the Ahmedabad Metropolitan Court.  

The petition, running into about 540 pages, demanded rejection of the order of Metropolitan Magistrate B J Ganatra, who had accepted the report giving a clean chit to Modi and others, which included Ministers and bureaucrats, named in a complaint filed by Zakia.
