New Delhi, Jan.14 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday informed the Delhi High Court that it has recorded the statement of US-based witness Jasbir Singh in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in which Congress leader Jagdish Tytler is an accused and would soon submit it in the trial court.
Appearing for the CBI, the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) P. P. Malhotra on Wednesday, said: “A CBI team had gone to the US to get his (Jasbir Singh’’s) statement recorded. The work has been done and the evidence would be filed in the appropriate court.”
Justice S Muralidhar, after hearing the contention of the ADG, disposed off the petition of 1984-riot victims seeking direction to the CBI to record the statement of Singh, who they (victims) claim, is a prime witness in the case.
California-based Jasbir Singh, was earlier declared non-traceable by the CBI, had in an affidavit before Nanavati Commission, which inquired into the anti-Sikh riots, stated that on November 3, 1984 he had overheard Tytler rebuking his men for nominal killing of Sikhs in his constituency. (ANI)
