Ahmedabad, Feb 19 (ANI): Gujarat High Court judge A. S. Dave on Thursday declined to hear the petition of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that challenged the anticipatory bail granted to State Minister Maya Kodnani and the former VHP leader Jaydeep Patel in connection with the Godhra case.
Not before me. The case will now be transferred to the court of another judge and the date of hearing would be decided later, Dave said.
Justice Dave did not give any reason for his decision.
