    NEW DELHI: A woman, whose father was killed during 1984 anti-Sikh riots here, on Wednesday stood by her earlier statement in a Delhi court that he had seen senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar inciting the mob during the carnage.

    "It is incorrect to suggest that I had not seen Sajjan Kumar in the area or that he had not addressed any gathering on that day," Nirpreet Kaur testified before additional sessions judge Sunita Gupta.

    The court concluded the recording of statement of Kaur who had been examined for 13 days.

    Kaur also said that she had informed CBI investigators about the place where she had seen the senior Congress leader inciting the mob during the riots.

    The court posted the matter for further hearing on February 7 for recording of evidence of one of the remaining victims in the case.
