Ahmedabad, Feb 13, 2015, (PTI):
A trial court today acquitted all the 68 accused due to lack of evidence in a case related to the 2002 post-Godhra riot at Seshan village in Deodar tehsil of Banaskantha district.
Fourteen persons, including two children, were killed in the violence at the village -- which is about 150 km from here -- in the aftermath of the Godhra train-burning incident.
