No action against erring policemen who did not file chargesheet of 84 sikh genocide against Sajjan Kumar for 20 years in the court : Home Minister

CHANDIGARH: Replying to the Question asked by Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Member Parliament Bathinda in Lok Sabha on the action taken against erring policemen and accused persons who did not file the chargesheet prepared in 1991 for 20 years pertaining to the case of murder and rioting during 1984 Sikh Genocide, the Union Home Minister has revealed that ‘No action against erring policemen and accused persons was taken by the government’.

The chargesheet in case no.67/87 under section 147/148/149/341/342/427/436 and 302 IPC PS Nangloi Delhi was not filed for 20 years in the Court after it was prepared in 1991 and it kept lying in Police Station. When the said chargesheet surfaced in the Court, Delhi Police claimed to have clubbed the said chargesheet with another FIR, which is not allowed as per provisions of Cr.PC. The Court vide its judgement on 23.10.2010 did not accept Delhi Police claim and ordered to file FIR according to the provisions of Cr PC. Thus rendering the claim of Delhi Police infructuous.

Harsimrat Badal had asked the Question in Lok Sabha in three parts (a) “whether the government is aware of a chargesheet prepared by the Delhi Police for filing in the Court in the year 1991 regarding 1984 Sikh Genocide/killing of Sikhs ? (b) If so, the details thereof and the reasons for delay in filing it in the court; (c) the steps taken by the government against the erring policemen and accused persons ?


The Home Minister of State, M. Ramachandran, did not reply to part (b) regarding providing details and reasons for delay in filing the chargesheet in the Court. And also did not reply as to whether any action was taken by the government against the erring policemen who did not file the chargesheet as per provisions of Cr.PC and against the accused persons who abetted not filing the chargesheet for 20 years.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal has expressed her deep anguish for this inaction of the Government.
