Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt and voluntary organisation People's Union for Civil Liberties jointly moved a petition before the Gujarat High Court on Thursday seeking directions to the Nanavati-Mehta Commission probing the riots cases to summon Chief Minister Narendra Modi before it.
They have also sought a direction to the panel to submit its final report before the Governor and not the government.
According to the petitioners, the government has amended the Commission's terms of reference while including to assess the role played by Modi and other ministers during the 2002 riots. However, so far, the Commission has not summoned Modi.
The petitioners further say that the Commission submitted its first report before the government, and so far, no action has been taken on the same.
The petitioners have also sought a direction to the Commission to direct the government to provide the documents sought by Bhatt related to the riots.
A division bench has kept the petition for hearing on October 5.
