    The cross-examination of Jagdish Kaur (69), who lost five family members during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, entered the 12th day on Thursday at a Delhi court, where Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and other co-accused are being tried on charges of inciting a mob against the Sikh community.

    Kaur denied defence counsel Anil Kumar’s Sharma’s allegation that she has demanded security in Delhi to show that she apprehended a threat to her life and hence cover up her earlier silence. “When I came to Delhi in the past 25 years, I did not ask for security. But now that everybody is aware that I’ve come to Delhi, I asked for it,” Kaur told the Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta.

    The defence claimed Kaur indicted Kumar only in 2000 before the Nanavati Commission. Kaur, however, said, she had named Sajjan in her complaint to the police on November 3, 1984, and also in an affidavit before the Ranganath Mishra Commission in 1985.

    On July 3, Kaur had identified Kumar, among others, for allegedly instigating mobs during the riots. Cross-examination of Kaur will resume on Monday.

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!
