Press Trust of India

Posted: Oct 13, 2006 at 1639 hrs IST

In an embarrassment to the Centre, the Gujarat High Court on Friday declared as "illegal" the setting up of UC Banerjee Committee to probe certain aspects of Godhra train carnage.

Justice BH 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 UC Banerjee, was set up by the Union Cabinet in Septemer 2004, to probe the incident in which 58 karsevaks were killed in a fire in S-6 coach of Sabarmati Express in February 2002.
