A key witness to a fatal attack during sectarian riots in India's Gujarat state has been sentenced to one year in jail for perjury.
India's Supreme Court on Wednesday handed down the one year term and a fine to Zahira Sheikh, whose Muslim family owned the bakery where 14 people died in 2002. A Hindu mob set fire to the building in the western town of Baroda, trapping and killing those inside.
The court said Sheikh perjured herself by retracting statements she made in earlier trials about the attack.
Last month, an Indian court sentenced nine Hindu men to life in prison for the arson.
More than one thousand people, mostly Muslims, were killed in Gujarat during three months of rioting in 2002.
