Ahmedabad: Following a complaint of alleged assault by journalist Revati Laul, the Gujarat Police, on Thursday arrested Suresh Chhara, who is a convict in the 2002 Gujarat riots case.

Reports suggest that Chhara was out on parole.

Laul earlier met Additional commissioner Manjita Vanzara regarding the alleged attack on her.

“My question is how the court could give him parole despite knowing the fact that he attacked his wife last time when he came out,” Laul told reporters and added as to how the country could feel secure if the courts are unable to save the common people from these convicts.
Laul said the convict Suresh Chhara slapped her when she asked him to share information about his past.

“I visited him at his house and I politely asked him if he wanted to share information about himself, his past and family. Without provocation, he started slapping me,” she had added.

Laul, who is writing a book on the convicts in the 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre case, said she was attacked by Suresh Chhara when she visited his house in Naroda area of Ahmedabad late Wednesday evening.

Chhara was proved to have been involved in the Naroda Patiya massacre case and was convicted to 31 years in prison.
