BJP on Kodnani: law will take its own course

New Delhi, March 27: The law would take its own course in the case of Gujarat minister Maya Kodnani, who quit Friday after her bail plea was rejected for her role in the 2002 sectarian violence, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said.

‘Once the decision has come from the Gujarat High Court, the party asked her to resign. She resigned. Rest, the law will take its own course,’ party spokesperson Balbir Punj told reporters here.

Kodnani, who is accused of leading mobs in Ahmedabad’s Naroda Patiya and Naroda Gaam areas in which 106 people were killed during the 2002 sectarian violence, submitted her resignation soon after the court verdict came in.

The Gujarat High Court had rejected her anticipatory bail plea stating that her role in leading mobs during 2002 sectarian violence was ‘nothing less than organised crime’.
