New Delhi (India), June 24: Union Minister Anurag Thakur has praised the Supreme Court's decision to reject a petition opposing the Special Investigation Team (SIT) report on post-Godhra violence in Gujarat, stating that truth alone counts.The Supreme Court of India has dismissed Zakia Jafri's appeal in which she challenged the SC-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) investigation into Gujarat's post-Godhra violence.According to Thakur, the petition is unfounded because it is rejected by the Supreme Court.The national emblem of India bears the name Satyamev Jayate, which means truth alone prevails.

On February 28, 2002, Ehsan Jafri was one of 69 people killed in attacks at the Gulberg Society in Ahmedabad, including Narendra Modi, the Gujarat Chief Minister.The bench, headed by Justices AM Khanwilkar, found the appeal unconservative.After deliberating over the issue, we reaffirm the Magistrate's decision to accept the stated final report submitted by the SIT on February 8, 2012, as it is, as well as dismissing the appellant's protest petition.We do not accept the appellant's assertion of a breach of the rule of law in the case of probe or the general procedure followed by the Magistrate and the High Court in deciding on the final report.

The bench said in its decision that we order accordingly.The apex court delivered the order on December 9, 2021, and senior advocate Kapil Sibal, representing Jafri, told the bench that they haven't raised the issue of the former chief minister's involvement or involvement in a bigger scheme than was not investigated by the SIT.Jafri also contested the Gujarat high court's decision in October 2017 not to reopen the SIT's closure report.The Gujarat High Court had upheld the Magisterial courts order, and accepted the SIT's closing analysis.
