New Delhi (November 8, 2013): It is learnt that the Delhi High Court has declined to grant a stay on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in a case related to the November 1984 violence against the Sikhs.

It is notable that on April 10, 2013 a trial court had ordered that the case be reopened against Indian politician Jagdish Tytler and also set aside the CBI’s closure report which gave the Congress party leader a clean chit on the ground that there was ‘no evidence’ against him.

Delhi High court denies to stay CBI investigations against Jagdish Tytler; Next hearing on 14 Junuary 2013

Indian politician Jagdish Tytler is one of the prime accused of Sikh Genocide 1984 who have been shield by Congress party and Indian state for last 29 years

As per information Justice Sunita Gupta of Delhi High Court declined on November 7, 2013 to accept the submission of Jagdish Tytler’s counsel for an order staying the ongoing investigation against his client and deferred the matter for January 17, 2014.

Jagdish Tytler’s counsel had told the court that the petitioner (Tytler) has decided not to file the rejoinder against CBI’s response to his plea and the court should hear the plea.

CBI’s counsel told the court that he would not be available for the arguments and the court should keep the matter for hearing on some other day.

On July 3, the high court had issued notice to CBI on an appeal filed by Jagdish Tytler against the trial court order reopening the case against him.

Earlier, the court also declined to stay the investigation saying “only investigation was ordered and this court will not stop the investigation.”

The trial court’s order had come on a plea filed by November 1984 massacre victim Lakhwinder Kaur who sought a further probe into the killing of three persons near Gurdwara Pul Bangash in old Delhi.

Jagdish Tytler is accused of instigating a mob that led to the murder of three men who had taken shelter at the Gurdwara on November 1, 1984.

It is notable that the Indian state, including the judiciary, has suffered failure to punish the prime perpetrators of the Sikh genocide 1984. Many cases remain uninvestigated even after 29 years while in many other cases investigations did not conclude despite all efforts made by the victims to secure justice.
