Tytler given clean chit in 1984 anti-Sikh riots caseApril 27th, 2010 - 6:29 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Apr 27 (ANI): A Karkardooma court on Tuesday let off former minister and Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case after accepting the closure report submitted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) that gave a clean chit to him.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rakesh Pandit said: “There is no sufficient material to send Tytler to trial.”
Giving a clean cheat to Tytler, the court further said there was no ground to order further investigation in the case.
The CBI had submitted that there was nothing to proceed against 66-year-old Tytler as two witnesses, Jasbir Singh and Surinder Singh, were not reliable and their statements were ‘false and concocted’.
Earlier on April 2, the CBI had given a clean chit to Tytler
De-sealing its final investigation report in a court, the CBI has recommended quashing of FIR against Tytler.
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 Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984 by two of her Sikh bodyguards. (ANI)
