    NEW DELHI: A witness, who lost his three brothers during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, on Wednesday told a trial court that he narrated the same incident to the CBI as well as the court and there was no discrepancy in his statements.

    The defence counsel confronted witness Jagsher Singh on the grounds that

    he had not given the exact details of the incident before the CBI but had narrated the entire incident before the court and, hence, his statement could not be relied upon.

    To this, Singh said the CBI had recorded only the relevant portion of his statement and that he had given the investigating agency the exact information as he had given before the court.

    Earlier, he had said that a Hindu man was arrested by police for providing shelter to Sikhs during the carnage. During the ongoing trial against senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, witness Jagsher Singh, who deposed before additional sessions judge Sunita Gupta, was being cross-examined by Sajjan Kumar's counsel in the 1984 carnage case.

    In his testimony on October 19, Singh had identified in the court Sajjan Kumar as the one who had allegedly provoked the mob to kill his brothers during the carnage. Singh, 43, is a cousin of complainant Jagdish Kaur whose husband Kehar Singh and a son were also killed during the riots.

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!
