A Delhi court will on Monday record the statement of former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar, who is facing trial in a 1984 anti Sikh riots case relating to the killing of six persons. The case against Sajjan, former outer Delhi MP, was registered on a recommendation by the justice G T Nanavati


Commission. The CBI had filed two charge sheets against him and others in January last year.
The trial against Sajjan hit roadblocks in the past, as the Congress leader had been taking legal recourse for the stay and quashing of charges in the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court.

However, decks were finally cleared on September 20, 2010, when the Supreme Court dismissed his plea for quashing criminal cases filed by the CBI.

The apex court had rejected Sajjan's argument that he cannot be tried after such a long gap of over 25 years, as it violated his fundamental right for speedy trial and that CBI's key witnesses cannot be relied upon.

It had said the materials placed by the CBI were sufficient for the magistrate to proceed against Sajjan whose guilt or otherwise can be determined only at the trial, which he now has to face.
