Besides Maulana Umarji, who was accused of instigating the others to set the train on fire, Mohammed Kalota, a former president of the Godhra Nagarpalika, was acquitted.

    Special Public Prosecutor, Mr JM Panchal, said the motive was to target the kar sevaks who were involved in the Ayodhya movement. “Petrol was brought and the train made to stop. Electricity was then cut and there was pouring of huge quantity of petrol and thereafter it (coach S-6) was set afire,” he said.

    On acquittal of Maulvi Umarji, who was projected as the prime conspirator, Mr Panchal said the court was not convinced with the evidence against him.
