    Anti-Sikh riot: Witness ready to testify

    Key witness in the 1984 anti-Sikh riot case, Jasbir Singh forced the CBI to reopen the case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler for his role in the case.

    Now Jasbir is ready to testify against Tytler, saying he heard the leader instigating people to attack Sikhs in the 1984 riots in Delhi.

    However, he says he doesn't want to leave his California home. But the CBI insists he come to India.

    ''I cant afford to go back. There is too much at stake. The CBI first said they couldn't find me, then under media pressure the situation changed. They don't want to question me. I want to testify. If they come here of course I will testify. I have carried on a crusade against this one man, of course I want justice,'' said Jasbir.

    The CBI has never been too enthused about Jasbir. In an official statement last month, the agency said, ''On December 3, 2007, the investigating officer contacted Jasbir Singh on telephone in the USA to indicate the date on which he would appear before CBI for his examination. Jasbir Singh, however, was evasive.''

    Last month, the court clearly said that it's up to the witness to decide how to join investigations.

    But the CBI's insistence on Jasbir coming to India seem a little strange, especially because the CBI has gone out of the country for many investigations before and also conducted a trial by video conferencing.

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!
