    Court accepts clean chit to Tytler

    A Delhi court accepted the CBI’s clean chit to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
    The court said the statements of two witnesses, who accused Tytler of inciting mobs to kill Sikhs in the aftermath of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assasination, were not reliable.
    The verdict is likely to be challenged in higher courts.
    Jasbir Singh, a witness from California, made ‘unreliable statements’, while Suriender Singh (who died in July 2009), made “self-contradictory” statements, the court said. HT had reported on September 28, 2009 that before his death, Suriender filed an affidavit in court saying “Tytler is innocent and he is not guilty of any wrong in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots”.
    Lakhwinder Kaur, widow of Badal Singh — one of three men killed in Pul Bangash area during the riots — had sought summoning of Tytler or direction to CBI for further investigation. But the court rejected it saying, “this court does not see any requirement for directing further investigation in the present matter."

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!
