BJP President Amit Shah is going to appear at  Ahmedabad Sessions Court on Monday to appear as a defence witness for Maya Kodnani in the Naroda  Patiyacase. The BJP president is set to reach Ahmedabad City Civil and Session Court at the old HC campus at 11 AM to present himself as a witness.

He had been asked by special court Judge PB Desai who had also made it clear it will not re-issue the summons if he failed to appear. On two previous occasions, Kodnani had failed to furnish the address to which the summons was to be issued.

Stating she was not present in the spot on February 28, 2002, the day the massacre took place, Kodnani claimed she had attended the assembly session before going to Sola civil hospital, where Amit Shah was also present. Kodnani is seeking Shah's testimony to prove her innocence.

Eleven people were killed in the Naroda Gam and Patiya massacre on February 28, a day after 59 persons were killed in the Godhra train carnage. Kodnani is sentenced to 28 years in jail in the Naroda Patiya massacre case. She is presently out on bail on health grounds.
