Gujarat BJP organises social media workshop in view of upcoming Assembly polls

Kodnani had first requested the court to summon Shah and 13 others in her defence in April this year.

Kodnani is among 82 accused in the Naroda Gam case in which 11 Muslims were killed on February 28, 2002, a day after the Sabarmati Express was torched at the Godhra railway station, killing 59 on board coach S-6, mostly kar sevaks returning from Ayodhya.

A judge ordered Shah to appear on Monday either in person or assign a lawyer to respond to what Kodnani claims: that she was not present when 11 Muslims were killed during the 2002 riots in Naroda Gram, a suburb of Ahmedabad, reported NDTV.

However, again on Tuesday, Kodnani said that she could not ascertain the address at which Amit Shah be served summons.

Kodnani had claimed that Shah's testimony will help prove her alibi. On two occasions, the former minister's advocate had sought time for four days each to find out and submit the address on which the summons could be issued to the BJP chief.

State leaders like Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy CM Nitin Patel and state BJP president Jitubhai Vaghani would also remain present during the workshop, he added.

Earlier, the court had asked the key accused Dr Kodnani to bring Mr Shah as defence witness latest by September 12. However, the court had given time till Tuesday stating that after this, examinations of the defence witnesses would be closed. Maya Kodanan was found guilty of the massacre of almost 100 Muslims in a neighbourhood called Naroda Patiya.

Meanwhile, BJP president Amit Shah, who was here today to interact with the youths under the Yuva Townhall programme, held a meeting with senior party leaders at state BJP headquarters Kamalam in Gandhinagar after the event.
