Justice Nanavati-Mehta Commission has given a clean chit to the then Gujarat government in 2002 riots. The commission tabled its final report in the state assembly today.
The report said that the riots were not organised. It said that the allegations leveled by senior police officers, namely R.B. Shrikumar, Rahul Sharma and Sanjiv Bhatt, had also been investigated and were found baseless.
Minister of State for Home Pradeepsinh Jadeja tabled the report in the House, five years after it was submitted to the then state government. The first part of the report of the commission, formed to inquire into the cause of the Godhra train burning incident and subsequent communal riots, was tabled in the Assembly on 25th September 2009.
