    Court today rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and dismissed similar bail applications of Peru, Mahendra Yadav, Brahmanand Gupta, Balwant Khokhar, Krishna Khokhar and Ved Prakash. CBI earlier chargesheeted these six persons along with Sajjan Kumar in two cases for their involvement in November 1984 massacre of Sikhs.

    The two charge sheets filed by the CBI pertain to killing of seven Sikhs in Sultanpuri, North-West Delhi and killing of five Sikhs in Delhi Cantonment during the November 1984 massacre of Sikhs.

    Opposing the bail application, Special Public Prosecutor of CBI, Y K Saxena stated that the witnesses have been apprehensive and have specifically stated the role of Sajjan Kumar in the massacre, murder and arson during November 1984. He also stated that the provision of anticipatory bail should not be invoked in grave offences like murder.

    The victims' counsel senior advocate H S Phoolka stated that it is a case of sensitive nature. He also stated that prosecution had become the instrument in the hands of the criminals in which the accused persons were acquitted.

    Special Judge P S Teji refused to grant any relief to Sajjan Kumar and others.

    On February 1, 2010, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Lokesh Kumar Sharma has sought the presence of Sajjan Kumar and others before the court on February 17, 2010.

    Attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, Legal Advisor Sikhs for Justice stated that the legal team of Sikhs for Justice will oppose the bail plea of Sajjan Kumar and others in the High Court as well.

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!
