Ahmedabad, June 6 (IBNS) : A special SIT court is expected to pronounce the quantum of sentence against the convicts in the 2002 Gulbarg massacre case.

The court had on June 2 convicted 24 accused.

The prosecution is likely to seek capital punishment for the 11 convicted of murder, while the lawyer of the victims may seek life imprisonment for them.

On June 2, Special Court Judge PB Desai had convicted 24 of the 66 accused, including a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader, in the Gulberg Society massacre, which took place amid the post Godhra communal frenzy.

In all  69 people, including former Congress MP Eshan Jafri, were brutally killed in the incident.
