2002 riots-convict Maya Kodnani's selfie goes viral, sparks angry reactions on social media
The former Gujarat minister, who had been granted bail last year on grounds of her delicate health, was seen in a selfie at a yoga camp, organised on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. According to reports, Kodnani had participated in the camp to alleviate her mental stress.
The selfie, however, was met with a barrage of comments, most of which expressed displeasure at the former Gujarat minister.

Maya Kodnani, now 61 years old, had been handed a 28-year jail term in 2012 after being found guilty of the 2002 riots, in particular the brutal massacre at Naroda Patiya village that left 97 people dead. She had become a minister in 2007 during current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister.
Kodnani was granted bail last year, owing to her fragile health, following which she was under treatment for acute depression.
