Legal Correspondent

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave the special investigation team (SIT), headed by the former CBI Director, R.K. Raghavan, more time to conduct a further probe into the 14 Godhra and post-Godhra communal riots cases of 2002 in Gujarat.

The SIT, which submitted its interim report in a sealed cover through amicus curiae Harish Salve, sought time till December 31 for completing the investigation, which also covers the case of torching of the Sabarmati express train on February 27, 2002.

A Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, P. Sathasivam and Aftab Alam agreed to the request. “They are doing a good job. Let us given them some more time,” Justice Alam said after pursuing the interim report.

The Bench constituted the SIT in March last for further probe into the incidents that occurred in Godhra, Sardarpura, Gulberg Society, Ode, Naroda Gaon, Naroda Patiya, Deepla Darwaza and the one involving British nationals.
