An accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving the killing of six persons, defended former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar on Wednesday over his alleged role in provoking a mob during the carnage.

Pleading innocence, Girdhari Lal submitted before Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta: “It is incorrect to say that Sajjan Kumar instigated the mob to kill Sikhs during the riots. I am innocent and I have been falsely implicated in the case.”

The court is likely to record the statement of another co-accused Captain Bhagmal on Thursday. It has already recorded the statements of other accused, including Balwan Khokkar, Kishan Khokkar and Mahender Yadav.

The case against Kumar, former Outer Delhi MP, was registered on the recommendation of the G T Nanavati Commission. Kumar is facing prosecution in two cases, where he has been accused of inciting mobs against Sikhs following the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.
