New Delhi, Mar 28 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday submitted its final investigation report on the former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler’s involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

The CBI has filed the report in a sealed envelope before Metropolitan Magistrate Ram Lal Meena. The court would consider the report on April 2.

However, according to sources, Congress leader Tytler, who has been fielded by his party from the Delhi’s northeast constituency for the coming General Elections, is likely to get a clean chit in the case.

The CBI is reported to have said that there is no evidence against Tytler, sources said

Tytler was among the three prominent leaders named in the reports on 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 assasination of Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984 by two of her Sikh bodygaurds. (ANI)
