    1984: Order on framing of charges on July 1

    A Delhi court has reserved its order on framing of charges against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and others in the Sultanpuri carnage that left six persons dead during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

    Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta, after hearing arguments both from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the accused on Saturday, said the court will pronounce its order on July 1.

    The CBI lawyer sought the prosecution of Kumar, a former Outer Delhi MP, and four others for murder, rioting and other offences under the IPC while the defence counsel requested discharge of the accused on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

    The arguments lasted for about two hours during which CBI counsel D P Singh referred to the statements of different witnesses to claim they had stood by their affidavits submitted before the Jain-Banerjee Committee, specifying the role of the accused. Kumar’s counsel, I U Khan and A K Sharma, however, said a total of 60 people were killed in Sultanpuri during the riots that followed the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984, but the CBI had named the leader only with regard to six deaths.
