Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on June 25 that he saw Prime Minister Narendra Modi endured pain through the “19-year-long battle” in the 2002 Gujarat riots case.Shah’s comment come a day after the Supreme Court upheld the Special Investigation Team’s (SIT) clean chit to Modi, who was then the Gujarat chief minister, and 63 others in the 2002 communal riots in the state, dismissing the plea of Zakia Jafri, whose husband Congress leader Ehsan Jafri was killed in the violence.

The Supreme Court has dismissed all allegations, it has said why allegations were levelled. You can say in a way that allegations are politically motivated, this has also been proved,” Shah told news agency ANI in an interview.A three-judge bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar upheld the magistrate’s order rejecting Zakia Jafri’s protest petition against the closure report filed by the SIT in 2012.
