    New Delhi, Sep 30 (PTI) A Delhi court today acquitted three persons accused of leading a mob that lynched a man during 1984 anti-Sikh riots here.

    Additional Sessions Judge Pinki acquitted Jagdish Singh, Sajjan Singh and Ishwar Singh, who were charged with leading a mob which allegedly killed Gurbakshish Singh outside his residence in Paschim Vihar locality on November one, 1984, during the riots that followed the assassination of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi.

    The police had registered an FIR almost eight years after the incident under various sections of IPC dealing with rioting, looting, arson and murder.

    Father of the victim, Swaran Singh Bhatia, who was forced to leave the country after the incident, had come from Canada last year to depose in the case.

    Bhatia had testified that the mob, which had besieged his house, was not stopped by the policemen who remained mute spectators during the entire episode.
