TW Newsdesk, January 25: 22 persons accused of killing 17 members of a minority community, including two children, were acquitted by a court in Halol town, Gujarat’s Panchmahal district, for lack of evidence in a case connected to the state’s 2002 post-Godhra communal riots.

The victims were allegedly murdered on February 28, 2002, and their bodies were burned with the goal of erasing any potential evidence.

According to defence attorney Gopalsinh Solanki, the court of Additional Sessions Judge Harsh Trivedi, acquitted all 22 defendants, eight of whom passed away while the case was pending.
