    Anti-Sikh Riot Victims Withdraw Plea


    Victims of anti-Sikh riots on Thursday withdrew their plea seeking permission to bring on record two news articles of 1984, about the alleged role of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the massacre, after a Delhi court assured them that it will look into the issue.

    District Judge J R Aryan refused to summon the editors of the two English dailies in which the articles had appeared, saying that at this stage it would delay the proceedings.

    The court has fixed the case for April 3 as the last day for the counsel of CBI, the accused and the victims to conclude their arguments in the case.Senior advocate H S Phoolka, appearing for the victims, withdrew the plea after the court told them that it will look into the content of Sajjan’s plea that if he had done whatever has been alleged against him at least one paper would have published it.

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!
