The petitioners are the original witnesses and victims of the offence.
The  criminal appeals filed by the accused as well as the petitioners and the State of Gujarat have been ordered to be heard together considering the fact that the impugned judgment and order is common.
28.07.2015 : An application was filed before the respondent no. 3 requesting to tender the copy of the paperbook to the victims who have lost their close family members. This request had been made earlier too by the petitioners. However, the request was declined on the ground that the petitioners must be required to pay Rs. 1.18 lac approx for the paperbook.
The petitioners can’t afford to pay such a huge amount, they are daily wage earners and are the Survivors of this brute act of targeted violence. Hence this petition.

TO,
THE HON’BLE CHIEF JUSTICE AND THE OTHER HON’BLE JUDGES OF THE HIGH COURT OF GUJARAT.
THE HUMBLE PETITION OF THE PETITIONER ABOVE NAMED
MOST RESPECTFULLY SHEWETH: -
  1. The petitioners are the original prosecution witness nos. 112, 106, 143, 142, 177 and 212 respectively in the Sessions Case Nos235/2009, 236/2009, 241/2009, 243/2009, 245/2009, 246/2009, 270/2009decided by the Ld. Sessions Judge, Ahmedabad. The petitioners herein have filed Criminal Appeal No. 1812/2012 u/s 372 Cr.P.C.The appealsfiled against the judgment and order of conviction have been filed by the accused whereas the appeals against acquittal have been filed by the petitioners being Criminal Appeal No 1812 of 2012.
  2. The petitioners respectfully submit that the petitioners are victims of the offence of mass carnage where more than eighty innocent people were done to death. The petitioners are extremely poor and are unable to pay the court fee amounting to Rs. 1.18 lac approx. It is under these circumstances the petitioner’s lawyer had tendered an application to the registry dtd. 28.07.2015. Annexed as ANNEXURE: “A” to this petition is the copy of the application to the registry of this Hon’ble Court. The petitioners can’t afford to pay such a huge amount, they are daily wage earners and are the Survivors of this brute act of targeted violence.
  3. The petitioners respectfully submit that there is no communication from the registry but the registry has been insisting for the payment of this preposterously huge amount againstthe paperbook. Now that the appeal is likely to proceed same request has been renewed on behalf of the petitioners but paying a huge amount is a big hurdle. The petitioners submit thatconsidering the impecunious conditions of the petitioners it would not be possible for them to bear the huge cost of obtaining the paperbook and thereby assist this Hon’ble Court in best possible manner. The petitioners further submit that the petitioners have not been rehabilitated by the state government by providing any house/ shelterand have been compelled to survive on their own. Under these circumstances if the petitioners are deprived of the paperbook it would be extremely difficult for them to assist this Hon’ble Court. The lack of access to the paper book would be a denial of natural justice to the petioners also Victim Survivors of a brute massacre.
  4. The petitioners have not filed any other petition either in this Hon’ble Court or in he Hon’ble Supreme Court of India withregard to the subject matter of this petition, and having no any other equally efficacious remedy, this petition is filed.
   6.        The petitioners therefore humbly prays that this HON’BLE COURT BE PLEASED: -
(A)              YOUR LORDSHIPS be pleased to order the respondent no. 3 to allow the petitioners to get one set of the combined paperbook for Criminal Appeal No. 1812/2012 and allied appeals  in the interest of justice;
(B)              YOUR LORDSHIPS be pleased to grant such  other and further relief as may be deemed fit in the facts and circumstances of the case;
AND FOR THIS ACT OF KINDNESS AND JUSTICE THE PETITIONER SHALL AS IN DUTY BOUND SHALL FOREVER PRAY
