    In another setback to senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, a court here Thursday decided to frame charges against him in a 1984 anti-Sikh riot case, two months after charges were framed against him in a separate case relating to the riots.

    Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta fixed July 5 for framing of charges against Kumar and others in connection with the killing of six persons in the case. "The framing of charges shall be done on July 5," said the ASJ who had on June 5 reserved its order on framing of charges against Kumar and others.

    CBI is seeking prosecution of Kumar, former outer Delhi MP, and Brahmanand Gupta, Peru, Khushal Singh and Ved Prakash for the murder of six persons at Sultanpuri area in north-west Delhi in the riots that took place in the aftermath of the assassination of the then Prime Minister.

    The same court had on May 28 had framed charges of murder and spreading enmity between two communities against Kumar in another anti-Sikh riots case, saying there are sufficient grounds for presuming that the violence was due to a "well-planned conspiracy" in Delhi Cantonment area.

    "There are sufficient grounds for presuming that violent incidents after October 31, 1984, in the following three days were the result of the well-planned conspiracy and provocative speeches made by accused Sajjan Kumar to the mob.

    CBI had filed two chargesheets against Kumar and others on January 13 in the riots cases registered in 2005 on the recommendation of Justice G T Nanavati Commission which inquired into the sequence of events leading to the riots.

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.
