    1984: Order on framing of charges on July 1

    A Delhi court has reserved its order on framing of charges against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and others in the Sultanpuri carnage that left six persons dead during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

    Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta, after hearing arguments both from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the accused on Saturday, said the court will pronounce its order on July 1.

    The CBI lawyer sought the prosecution of Kumar, a former Outer Delhi MP, and four others for murder, rioting and other offences under the IPC while the defence counsel requested discharge of the accused on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

    The arguments lasted for about two hours during which CBI counsel D P Singh referred to the statements of different witnesses to claim they had stood by their affidavits submitted before the Jain-Banerjee Committee, specifying the role of the accused. Kumar’s counsel, I U Khan and A K Sharma, however, said a total of 60 people were killed in Sultanpuri during the riots that followed the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984, but the CBI had named the leader only with regard to six deaths.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
