2002 Naroda Patiya case: SC grants bail to four convicts

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to four convicts in the Naroda Patiya massacre case in Gujarat in which 97 people were killed by a mob during the 2002 riots in the state.

The four convicts -- Umeshbhai Surabhai Bharwad, Rajkumar, Padmendrasinh Jaswantsinh Rajput and Harshad alias Mungda Jila Govind Chhara Parmar -- were granted bail by a bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar.

Earlier in 2018, the Gujarat High Court had upheld the conviction of 12 out of the 29 accused who were pronounced guilty on various charges by the trial court and had acquitted 17 others, including former BJP minister Maya Kodnani.
