Naroda Patiya riots case: Maya Kodnani acquitted.

  GANDHI NAGAR, APRIL 20TH 

The Gujarat High Court on Friday acquitted former BJP minister Maya Kodnani while upholding the life sentence of Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi in the 2002 Naroda Patiya riots case.

While Bajrangi’s life sentence has been upheld, his sentence has been commuted to 21 years in prison. Dr. Kodnani's personal assistant, Kirpal Singh Chabda, was also acquitted. In August 2012, a special court for SIT cases had sentenced 32 people, including Dr. Kodnani and Bajrangi to life imprisonment. While Dr. Kodnani was sentenced to 28 years of imprisonment, Bajrangi was awarded life  imprisonment till death. The trial court had also acquitted 29 other accused for want of evidence.
