New Delhi: Slain Congress MP Ehsan Jafri's wife Zakia Jafri's plea objecting to the Special Investigation Team's clean chit to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on Thursday.
The SIT had said that the 2002 case against Modi and 62 others should be closed. Zakia Jafri's husband, Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, was burnt to death in the riots of 2002.
On April 27, 2009, the apex court had asked the SIT to look into the complaint of Zakia allegedly blaming 63 people, including the chief minister, for inaction.
