Law has its own way to measure justice against all kinds of attack over public tranquility
Yesterday, A special court in Gujarat on Wednesday convicted and jailed for life 31 of the 73 accused in the 2002 Sardarpura post-Godhra riot case in which 33 people of a minority community were burnt alive.The Sardarpura killings case is one of nine singled out for special investigation by India's Supreme Court - in 2003 and is the first post-Godhra riot case, probed by the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT), on which the verdict has been pronounced and the 31 accused were found guilty of murder, attempted murder, arson, rioting and criminal conspiracy after 33 people were burned alive in a building.After the Godhra train burning incident in which 59 people, mainly karsevaks, were burnt to death on February 27 2002, riots had taken place across the state, in which Sardarpura town in Vijapur taluka also fell prey to violence.Out of 76 accused arrested in respect of Sardarpura Case, the court had framed charged against 73 accused and 112 witnesses were examined including 20 eye witnesses victims and others. In February last year in the matters of highly debated Godhara Train Burning case, probed by a special court in Gujarat, 31 people were jailed for life, being found guilty of setting fire to the passenger train with the killings of 59 karsevaks in the town of Godhra. And the recent verdict in Sardarpura Case is the first verdict in post-Godhara riots, which was one of India's worst outbreaks of religious violence in recent years, disturbing the public tranquility and communal harmony in India. But it is always said in our Judiciary that Law has its own way to measure justice against all kinds of attacks over public tranquility, irrespective of any discrimination on the basis of caste or religion. The Goddess of Justice does not see who is before her but only measures the weight of evidences put before her.
