    Opposition demands action against Sajjan for '84 riots

    Post a comment

    NEW DELHI: Opposition members in Rajya Sabha on Thursday demanded action against former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar and others for their alleged role in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984.

    Citing the TOI report which stated how the investigating agency had earlier ignored cases against Kumar leading to delay of trial, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) member Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said the government should make efforts to speed up the trial and punish those guilty of the 1984 riots.

    Dhindsa also pointed out how the CBI allegedly messed up with the probe in the case of another Congress leader. He said while joint director of the agency stated it to be a fit case to be chargesheeted, the director allegedly turned it down arguing for filing a closure report.

    Dhindsa was supported in the Upper House by independent member Tarlochan Singh who alleged that the government had failed to do justice to the victims of the 1984 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!
