1 Min Read

MUMBAI: A special court in Mumbai has deferred the Best Bakery case verdict and said that it will pronounce its judgment on June 2.

The case pertains to a bakery in Vadodara that was torched by a mob during the 2002 Gujarat riots, which led to the death of 14 people.

Following the incident, the bakery owner’s daughter Zaheera Sheikh had lodged a police complaint against 21 people.

In June 2003, when the fast-track court acquitted all the accused, it pointed to lack of evidence as key witnesses, including Sheikh, had turned hostile. (ANI)
