What is the whole matter

Please tell that the Sabarmati Express caught fire on 27 February 2002 at Godhra station. 59 people died in it. After this incident, riots broke out all over Gujarat. Most of the people killed in the Godhra train fire were car servants who were returning from Ayodhya. The Nanavati Commission, constituted by the Gujarat government to investigate the matter, had said in its investigation report that the fire in the S-6 coach was not an accident, but it was set on fire.

Significantly, in the 2002 riots, the Gujarat police were accused of being passive in this case. Hundreds of people were killed in the violence that lasted for three days, while many went missing. It is alleged that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi did not take necessary action to stop the rioters. He ordered not to take action against police rioters. Later, the SIT was formed by the UPA government at the Center to investigate the riots, which gave a clean chit to Narendra Modi in his report.

At the same time, in the Godhra train fire case, the Gujarat High Court, while giving a big decision, changed the sentence of 11 convicts to life imprisonment by hanging. On March 1, 2011, 31 people were found guilty in the Godhra train fire case by SIT court and 63 were acquitted. The court sentenced 11 people to death and 20 people were sentenced to life imprisonment.
