Significantly, on Thursday, the Gujarat High Court has canceled the petition of Zakia Jafri, filed in the Gulberg Society case. Let me tell you that he had challenged the clean chit given in the Gulberg Society case. In the petition, Zakia had demanded that the charges against 59 people in the case of the Gujarat riots should be decided.

The court had said that the riots will not be investigated again and the court has canceled the charges of any big conspiracy in it. However, the Gujarat High Court had also told from Zakia that if they want, they can also go to the Supreme Court.
