Alibi


Just wanted everyone to learn meaning of the word ‘alibi’. An alibi is a Latin word and is ”a form of defense used in criminal procedure wherein the accused attempts to prove that he or she was in some other place at the time the alleged offense was committed”.

Gujarat Minister of State for Women and Child Development, Maya Kodnani was send to jail, in August 2012, for 28 years in the Naroda Patiya riots of February 2002. The Special Investigation Team (SIT) Court called her ‘kingpin’ and decided she would serve the jail term under different Sections of the IPC; 10 years under Section 326 and 18 years under Sections 120(B) (criminal conspiracy), 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder). Witnesses had told investigators that Maya Kodnani, a gynaecologist, played a leading role in the massacre of 95 people – 30 men, 32 women and 33 children – in , an area falling under her Assembly constituency.

Maya

She was granted bail in July 2014 by Gujarat High Court who suspended her sentence on grounds of her sickness and possible delay in trial. In April 2017, she first requested the Special Sessions Court in Ahmedabad to summon Amit Shah and 13 others as defense witness.  After much dilly dallying in the case. Maya Kodnani claimed that she had failed to reach Amit Shah, because he was constantly travelling outside Gujarat. Finally on September 17, 2017 Amit Shah appeared and told the court that Maya Kodnani was present in Gujarat Assembly during the Naroda Gam riot. Amit Shah backs Kodnani’s alibi

Maya Kodnani just establish her alibi.

    The trial court in its judgement had said, “Accused 37 (Kodnani) has been proved to be the kingpin of the entire communal riot and one of the principal conspirators who has actively instigated the rioters and has abetted them to form unlawful assembly to execute the conspiracy hatched under her leadership with other co-conspirators.”

    But then she will walk free because Modi and Shah can manure things. Remember the Babu Bajarangi sting operation
