    New Delhi, Mar 10 (PTI) A journalist, who had hurled a shoe at Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram, today alleged he was roughed up outside a Delhi court following the hearing in anti-Sikh riots cases against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar. Jarnail Singh filed a written complaint with Karkardooma court police post apprehending threat to his life and alleged that one Atma Singh Lubana and others used abusive words against him and tried to push him around this afternoon.
    "Lubana, who is alleged to have won over witnesses in 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases, also threatened me with dire consequences in the presence of police personnel," he said in the complaint, demanding action. Following the incident outside the gate of Karkardooma courts complex, Singh said he was taken to the police post after intervention by the policemen present at the site.
    Sajjan Kumar, the former Outer Delhi MP along with others today appeared before a Delhi court which granted them bail in two anti-Sikh riots cases. Scores of Sikh protesters had gathered outside the court raising slogans and demanding action against the guilty in the matter.
    Singh had lobbed a shoe at a press conference of Chidambaram on April 8 last year following the CBI''s clean chit to former Union Minister and Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in the anti-Sikh riots case.

    Judiciary need to be fast and independent. Otherwise these things will keep happening. It is surprising no political party of sikhs is making it a big issue. Mr. Mann has an opportunity here.

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!
