    Sajjan incited mob to target Sikhs in ’84 riots: CBI to court

    The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday contended before a Delhi court that senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar had incited the mob during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots to target the Sikh community in Sultanpuri area of Delhi.

    In the court of Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta, the CBI alleged that Kumar’s speech was so provocative that it prompted the mob to attack Sikhs and consequently very few Sikhs persons were left alive in the area.

    “Kumar delivered an address inciting the mob to target Sikhs. He was leading in a jeep and others followed him on motorcycles. Only Sikhs and their households were targeted, while no Hindu house suffered mob fury,” CBI counsel D P Singh told the court.

    Singh charged Kumar, a former MP, with a criminal conspiracy for “whatever happened in the locality of Sultanpuri”, including the death of eight persons in the riots that followed the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

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!
