“Though her blood pressure is down and her health is deteriorating, Nirpreet Kaur … says her fast against Sajjan Kumar will continue”, an online news portal (Babushahi) has reported.

Bibi Nirprit Kaur reportedly said that her fast at Jantar Mantar (Delhi) would continue until the government fulfils her demand for a through investigation in the November 1984 related cases.

She was one of the key witnesses against Indian politician Sajjan Kumar in a case related to massacre of Sikhs at Delhi Cant area.

It is worth mentioning that thousands of Sikhs were massacred during the first week of November 1984 in Delhi and elsewhere in India. The killings of Sikhs were carried out in form of different massacres, that were part of a wider plan of genocide of Sikhs.

Indian state system did not only suffered the failure to deliver justice to the victims and try/punish the culprits; rather it patronized and rewarded the culprits with political seats.

Sajjan Kumar is an Indian politician who was able to evade investigation or trial in November 1984 Sikh massacres related cases for more than two decades.

Indian system took 29 years to conclude a case against Sajjan Kumar. Sajjan Kumar was facing charges of instigating the killings of Sikhs at Delhi cantonment area in this case.

It was only after the recommendations of Justice G. T. Nanavati Commission in 2005 that FIR in this case was registered against him. The CBI had filed charge-sheet against Sajjan Kumar and five others in 2010 in this case.

On April 30, 2013 the trial court the District and Sessions Judge J. R. Aryan acquitted Sajjan Kumar while convicting five others -Balwan Khokkar, an ex-councillor, Mahender Yadav, an ex-MLA, Kishan Khokkar, Girdhari Lal and Captain Bhagmal.
