Maya Kodnani Wasn't in Naroda Gam, Amit Shah Tells Ahmedebad Court”

His deposition before the court is under way. Shah's testimony would help prove her "alibi", that she was present elsewhere when the crime took place, she said. "She was inside the state Assembly at 8.30 am", Shah, who finally appeared before the special SIT court in Ahmedabad as Kodnani's defence witness, said.

Earlier, Kodnani had sought time from a special SIT court, saying that she was not able to find Shah's address where the court could issue summons to him.

In 2002 during the communal riots that engulfed Ahmedabad following the burning of the Sabarmati Express at Godhra, Kodnani was accused of instigating the rioters, firing a pistol and even distributing arms that she had transported to Naroda in her vehicle. Mr Shah is the last listed defence witness in her trial; all others have been cross-examined by the court.

Shah said he had gone to the Assembly on February 28, 2002 to attend a session which started at 8.30 in the morning, and Kodnani was present in the House. It is tonne notes that dead bodies of killed Kaesevaks were brought to Sola Civil hospital from Godhra Railway Station. The apex court had in September a year ago given the special court six-month time to conclude trial.

A gynecologist who was always more keen on politics than on her medical practice, Maya Kodnani's fall from being a poster girl for the RSS in the state after being implicated in the 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre has been rapid and had finally ended in tears on 29 August 2012. A bench headed by former Chief Justice J.S. Khehar asked the lower court to complete recording of evidence of defence witnesses in two months.

Kodnani is already a convict in cases of rioting that earned Gujarat an global shame in 2002. She is among the 82 accused facing trial for allegedly killing 11 Muslims. Kodnani has been convicted and sentenced to 28 years in jail in the Naroda Patiya riot case in which 96 people were killed.

She has been accused of inciting and leading a mob to carry out violent attacks in Naroda Gam, leading to the death of 11 Muslims.
