2002 riots: SC sets aside Gujarat HC order on re-building of destroyed mosques

News Agencies | Updated on: 29 August 2017, 12:42 IST

The Supreme Court on 29 August set aside the Gujarat High Court order in connection with the re-building of mosques destroyed during the state's 2002 riots, triggered after the Godhra incident.

A bench, comprising of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice P.C. Pant, allowed the state government's appeal challenging the High Court verdict that it should reimburse for reconstruction and repair works of religious structures damaged during the 2002 riots.

The apex court was hearing a petition filed by the Gujarat government challenging a 2012 High Court order directing it to compensate for damages caused to religious structures during the 2002 riots for the failure of law and order machinery.
