New Delhi, Apr 2 (ANI): The Kakardooma Court will today consider the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) final investigation report on former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler’s involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

On March 28, the CBI filed the report in a sealed envelope before Metropolitan Magistrate Ram Lal Meena.

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 assassination of Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984 by two of her Sikh bodyguards. (ANI)
