The
summons to chief minister Narendra Modi on charges of mass murder and
criminal conspiracy is historic and unprecedented. There is enough
prima facie evidence to lodge an FIR against the accused that includes
the chief minister.

 The
present complaint against chief minister Narendra Modi and 61 others
is being investigated by the Special Investigation Team (SIT)
following an order of the Supreme Court of India in SLP 1088/2008
filed by Smt Zakia Ahsan Jafri and Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP)
asking for registration of an FIR on charges of mass murder and
criminal conspiracy. This complaint was dated June 8, 2006 and went
uninvestigated and non-registered by the Gujarat police who was by the
time it was sent, headed by Shri PC Pande former Commissioner of
Police Ahmedabad, by then promoted to senior most police officer,
Director General of Police , Gujarat.

While
the matter was still in the Gujarat High Court a tremendous boost to
the complainants was given by the exposure of the extrajudicial
confessions of TehelkaÂ’s Operation Kalank (October 25-27 2007) that,
in many parts spoke of the direct role of chief minister Narendra Modi
in directing and masterminding the massacre. These tapes have been
authenticated by the CBI under direct orders of the National Human
Rights Commission. Both the Gujarat High Court and the Supreme Court
of India directed that they be used as evidence at the appropriate
time. The detailed and extremely courageous exposure by Tehelka
and its then correspondent Ashish Khetan also point to the involvement
of several persons in the conspiracy to commit mass murder and
economic destruction.

Today,
Tehelka, a magazine devoted to the public interest has
permitted the release of portions of these tapes in the public domain.
Today we release those portions that expose  (a) the arms and bombs
distribution in different parts of Gujarat b efore the Godhra incident
ie Februaru 27 2002 and b) the direct or indirect role of Shri Modi
alleged by BJP and VHP/Bajran Dal cades on camera that amount to extra
judicial confessions. We, at CJP representing the victim survivors of
the Gujarat genocidal carnage of 2002 acknowledge the role of
Tehelka
, express our gratitude  to Tehelka
and put these out in the public domain in the public interest.
