    Rohatgi: Therefore, the allegation is this that the train burning was also sponsored. This is the only meaning I get.

    Bench: We’ll continue on Wednesday.

    Rohatgi: The enormity of the suggestion that even before the incident of 27.02.2002 - these fellows had material 2 days before because did they know that some elements will come and burn the train or this is to say that the train burning is also by the hindu community.

    Rohatgi: Allegation is buildup of arms and communal mobilisation before the Godhra incident. This is something very curious.

    Rohatgi: Allegation of hate speech of Togadia, it is not there in the complaint. Zadafia is one of 63 accused, but this is not the allegation in the complaint.

    Rohatgi: Most of the allegations are brought on record when the protest was filed. The scope of allegation was expanded subsequent to the complaint.

    Rohatgi: Now about hate speeches. Kindly turn to para 45. The complaint of Zakia is limited to the extent - No action against press publishing communal material inciting violence.

    Rohatgi: This should have gone to the Malkhana. He was in possession of case property. The original CDs were not there, Sharma made copies. Last comment (by SIT) is that why did he not take CDRs for Gandhinagar, which was capital.

  • 25 Nov 2021 10:17 AM GMT

    Rohatgi: Now, Rahul Sharma. This person was collecting CDRs by his own from 2 service providers for Ahmedabad and Godhra.

    Bench: We may not deal with that evidence in this proceeding, but we will look at it. (In lighter vein) We are saying 'look into' in the same way you (SIT) were said to 'look into'.

    Bench: Can you give the evidence of PW313 - Ashish Khetan?

    Rohatgi: We’ll give Ashish Khetan and Zakia.
