After sustained litigation by Citizens for Justice and Peace, an NGO headed by Teesta Setalvad, the Supreme Court held that the CPRC's decision would be applicable and those who the committee feels were wrongly charged under the terror law would now be tried under ordinary law.
In all, 134 people were accused in the Godhra attack. Of these, 116 were arrested and 18 declared absconders, including one who later died. Of those arrested, 13 were released for lack of evidence and 103 charge-sheeted. Nineteen were released on bail, including three juveniles and two others who later died. Three others died in judicial custody. A total of 81 are in jail, 79 in Ahmedabad's Sabarmati Central Jail and two others in a juvenile observation home.
