AHMEDABAD: In an embarrassment to the Centre, the Gujarat High Court on Friday declared as “illegal” the setting up of U C Banerjee committee to probe certain aspects of Godhra train carnage.

Justice B H Vaghela pronounced the order on a petition filed by a survivor of the carnage, Neelkanth Bhatia, who had challenged the setting up of Banerjee committee at a time when Justice Nanawati Shah commission was already probing the matter.

The committee, headed by former Supreme Court judge U C Banerjee, was set up by the Union Cabinet in Septemer 2004, to probe the incident in which 58 kar sevaks were killed in a fire in S-6 coach of Sabarmati Express in February 2002.
