    CBI blames Congress leader Sajjan Kumar for 1984 anti-Sikh riots

    TNN - Apr 23, 2012, 05.02PM IST

    NEW DELHI: The CBI on Monday blamed Congress leader Sajjan Kumar for organising the Sikh riots in 1984.

    The CBI said Sajjan Kumar went about inciting mobs and that the killings in the Delhi cantonment area in 1984 were not spontaneous. Sajjan Kumar allegedly told mobs: Not a single Sikh should survive, according to TV reports quoting the CBI.

    The CBI said, "people of a certain community were targeted and that the riots were well-organised and backed by both the government and the police."

    The CBI on April 12 apprised a Delhi court of statements of witnesses who had identified Sajjan Kumar, facing trial for his alleged role in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, as the person who was instigating a mob during the carnage.

    Sajjan Kumar and five others, Balwan Khokkar, Kishan Khokkar, Mahender Yadav, Girdhari Lal and Captain Bhagmal, are facing trial in the killings of six people at Delhi Cantonment during the riots.

    They are accused of instigating a mob to kill Sikhs in the wake of the assassination of former prime minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984. Kaur had earlier identified in the court Sajjan Kumar and three others as the persons who had allegedly instigated mobs during the 1984 carnage.

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!
