    An accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving the killing of six persons, defended former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar on Wednesday over his alleged role in provoking a mob during the carnage.

    Pleading innocence, Girdhari Lal submitted before Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta: “It is incorrect to say that Sajjan Kumar instigated the mob to kill Sikhs during the riots. I am innocent and I have been falsely implicated in the case.”

    The court is likely to record the statement of another co-accused Captain Bhagmal on Thursday. It has already recorded the statements of other accused, including Balwan Khokkar, Kishan Khokkar and Mahender Yadav.

    The case against Kumar, former Outer Delhi MP, was registered on the recommendation of the G T Nanavati Commission. Kumar is facing prosecution in two cases, where he has been accused of inciting mobs against Sikhs following the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

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!
