Gulberg case: SIT submits closure report in trial court
Based on the application of some victims and witnesses, the trial court presided over by specially appointed judge B J Dhandha, had ordered SIT to submit a relevant portion of its closure report. Previously, SIT was pulled up by the trial court for it did not submit the report.
On Wednesday, SIT complied with the order and submitted two sealed covers before the court. Soon after, SIT counsel RC Kodekar moved an application requesting the court not to open the covers.
SIT’s main objection for not submitting the closure report before the trial court was that the metropolitan court, where the original closure report has been submitted, is yet to take a decision.
SIT believed that presenting portions of the same to the trial court for the Gulberg Society massacre case would lead to parallel judicial hearings.
Also, if the court for the Gulberg Society massacre case passes an order on the basis of the report, it might lead to a prejudice amongst either
