Alp-Sankhyak Adhikar Manch, representing those displaced during the 2002 post-Godhra riots in Gujarat, today claimed that the BJP government in the state hasn't transferred ownership rights of the new houses built for them.

Around 3,000 families are living in 83 colonies built for their rehabilitation by various NGOs across nine districts, said advocate Shamshad Pathan of the Manch. Most of these residents are, however, yet to get legal ownership of their new houses, Pathan said.

The accused also contended that a major part of the investigation was over and sought bail, promising they would abide by any condition laid down by the court. Most of the accused argued that section 304(II) (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) had been applied wrongly in the case and the accused were chargeable for the less serious offence of causing death due to negligence. The advocate of one of the accused said that bouncers of the eatery '1 Above' had asked the guests not to leave the washroom, and those who were inside died due to suffocation, and none died due to burn injuries. The prosecution will begin its argument tomorrow. On December 29, a massive fire had swept through two rooftop pubs, 'Mojo's Bistro' and '1 Above', located in Kamala Mills compound, resulting in
