NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday ordered a Gujarat lower court to complete the trial of the 2002 Naroda Gam massacre case within six months.

A special designated court in Ahmedabad is hearing the case.

The court had in June 2105 reserved its order on an application moved by the accused seeking arraignment of former IPS officer Rahul Sharma and former investigating officer of this case P.L Mal for destroying evidence.

The Naroda Patiya massacre took place on February 28, 2002, in Ahmedabad during the 2002 Gujarat riots in which 11 persons were killed.

The massacre at Naroda occurred during the shutdown called by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad a day after the Godhra train burning.
