Major relief for former BJP Minister of Gujarat and controversial leader Maya Kodnani acquitted today in a Naroda Patiya case. she was initially convicted in the 2002 riots case by a trial court in which over 90 persons were murdered. She was sentenced to 28 years in prison by the trial court which also called her the chief instigator in the case. The Gujarat High Court, however, acquitted her of all charges. The acquittal came following witnesses turning hostile, judges recusing themselves, and the Special Investigation Team (SIT) choosing not to seek an enhancement of Kodnani’s sentence, saying it didn’t have the necessary .sanction to do so .It’s a huge relief for the Gujarat BJP and their leaders.
