Ahmedabad, Feb 13, 2015, (PTI):
A trial court today acquitted all the 68 accused due to lack of evidence in a case related to the 2002 post-Godhra riot at Seshan village in Deodar tehsil of Banaskantha district.
Fourteen persons, including two children, were killed in the violence at the village — which is about 150 km from here — in the aftermath of the Godhra train-burning incident.
Additional District and Sessions Judge V K Pujara of Taluka court, Deodar, said the statements of the witnesses did not support other evidence.
190 witnesses had deposed before the court.
