The commission comprising the Chairman, Justice G. T. Nanavati, and Justice K. G. Shah, earlier proposed to start hearing the Vadodara riot victims in February last, but had to put off the idea following a request by the then Commissioner of Police, D. D. Tuteja.
According to official sources, all necessary arrangements, including police bandobust, had been made at the circuit house, the venue of the hearing.
The commission which had covered almost all riot-hit districts, including Panchmahal (Godhra), would visit Ahmedabad, the worst-hit in the riots, in the last phase of recording evidence after the Vadodara sittings. Amongst the major incidents of violence in Vadodara, the Best Bakery carnage in which 12 persons were burnt alive inside the bakery at Hanuman Tekri, is likely to dominate the proceedings even as about 30 prosecution witnesses have already turned hostile during the trial of the case before a fast track court here.
