    New Delhi, Jul 13 (PTI) A key witness of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, whose testimony was recorded by CBI last year in New York, today died at AIIMS following a massive heart attack.

    "Gyani Surinder Singh died following a heart attack at AIIMS," senior advocate H S Phoolka, who has been appearing for the riots' victims, said.

    Surinder Singh, who alongwith other key witness Jasbir Singh, had recorded his statement before CBI investigators in USA last year in the case in which Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler was under the scanner.

    The CBI, however, gave the clean chit to the Congress leader.

    The witness, who later came to India, was being harassed by the police at the instance of Tytler, Phoolka alleged.

    "His passport was taken at the IGI airport, minutes after the flight landed here," the advocate claimed.

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!
