Nanavati Commission Gives Clean Chit To Narendra M
The Nanavati Commission has given a clean chit to the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others in 2002 post-Godhra violence in which over 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed in widespread communal riots across the state.

The Gujarat government on Wednesday tabled the final part of the Justice Nanavati-Mehta Commission report in the State Legislative Assembly. The Commission held that the riots were not organised and the State administration had taken all necessary measures to control the situation.

"There is no evidence to show that these attacks were either inspired or instigated or abated by any minister of the state," the commission said in its report, which runs into over 1,500 pages and is compiled in nine volumes.

It said the police were ineffective at some places in controlling the mob because of their inadequate numbers or because they were not properly armed, adding that the “police had not shown their competence and eagerness which was necessary."

The first part of the report, which dealt with the Godhra train burning incident in which 59 ‘karsevaks’ were killed, was tabled in the Assembly in 2009.
