I will react only after court’s judgement: TytlerApril 9th, 2009 - 2:39 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Apr 9 (ANI): Former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler, who will appear in the Kakardooma Court today in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, said that he will give his reaction on the issue after the court takes notice of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report.
Tytler, who had recently been given a clean chit by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), said on Thursday, “I will react only after the court’s judgement.”
However, he failed to give any comment on the possibility of participating in the election from North-East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, where he has been named as a candidate.
Meanwhile, the Congress party sources clarified that no decision has been taken on his candidature so far.
The court may decide on accepting the CBI closure report against Tytler and ordering the quashing of charges against him or order fresh investigation into the case.
On April 7, the Congress indicated a possibility of reviewing its decision to contest Tytler following a shoe-throwing incident in All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarter in Delhi.
A Sikh journalist of the Dainik Jagran newspaper threw a shoe at Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram during a press conference at the Congress headquarters to protest against “clean chit” to Tytler.
The CBI, on April 2, had recommended quashing of FIR against Tytler as it did not have sufficient evidence to proceed on the matter. On March 28, the CBI filed the report in a sealed envelope before Metropolitan Magistrate Ram Lal Meena.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 then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984, by two of her Sikh bodyguards.
