1984 riots: CBI to study verdict of Delhi Court''s order on reopening of case

April 10:

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will study the Delhi Court''s verdict in which it has ordered reopening of a 1984 anti-Sikhs riots case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.

The investigating agency will decide on the future course of action after studying the court''s orders.

A Delhi Court today set aside the CBI closure report on Tytler, and ordered the reopening of the case against the Congress leader in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

The CBI had earlier given a clean chit to Tytler in 2007 and in 2009 claiming there was no evidence against him.

However, challenging the closure report filed by the CBI in 2009, Lakhwinder Kaur, whose husband was killed in the riots, argued that the investigating agency had not recorded the testimonies of two key eyewitnesses who have since the riots moved to the United States.

During the arguments on April 4, the CBI prosecutor had sought the dismissal of the plea filed by the victim, saying the probe has made it clear that Tytler was not present on November 1, 1984 at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three people were killed during the riots.

The prosecutor said at the time of the incident, Tytler was at Teen Murti Bhawan, the residence of the then late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Tytler was among the three prominent leaders named in the reports on the anti-Sikh riots. Two other leaders named were Sajjan Kumar and the late HKL Bhagat.

The 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which claimed the lives of almost 3000 Sikhs, were triggered by the assassination of Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984 by two of her Sikh bodyguards. (ANI)
