Court adjourns hearing in Tytler case to April 28April 9th, 2009 - 4:12 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) Congress leader Jagdish Tytler won a brief respite as a court here Thursday postponed till April 28 its hearing in a case during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) argued before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Rakesh Pandit that the court was not empowered to try the case as it involved charges of murder, which can be tried in a session court only. The magistrate then said he would hear both sides on this issue on April 28-29 before coming to a decision.
Tytler is accused of having incited mobs to attack Sikhs in the aftermath of the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi.
