AHMEDABAD: Two accused in the 2002 Gulberg Society riot case today filed an application before the special trial court here, seeking to undergo narco-analysis and bran-mapping tests to prove their innocence.
The case relates to massacre at Gulberg Society here during the post-Godhra riots. As many as 69 persons, including former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, were killed in the incident.
"We want to undergo narco and brain mapping test with our own consent and without being in fear or under pressure of any other persons," said the application filed by Babu Rathod alias Babu Marvadi and Naran Tank alias Naran Channelvala before judge P B Desai.
The application says they are innocent and were not present at Gulberg Society on February 28, 2002, the day of the incident. Giving their whereabouts on the day in detail, they say they were out from 10.30 am to 7.30 pm.
Terming the investigation as biased, the two accused contend that they were framed up. The application also says that they may file a petition for further investigation in the case as per the direction of the High Court.
The court, which is conducting final hearing in the case, is likely to hear the application next week.
The Gulberg Society case is one of the nine cases of the 2002 Gujarat riots probed by the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team. There are 66 accused in the case.
