New Delhi (April 19, 2010): In April 1992 a charge sheet against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a November 1984 Sikh Massacre case citing sufficient evidence to proceed against him was prepared but it was never brought before a judge to seek his prosecution.
Special Public Prosecutor B S Joon stated before Additional Sessions Judge VK Goyal that the charge sheet was prepared in the case FIR number 67/87 in police station Nangloi, naming Sajjan Kumar as accused on April 8, 1992 but it was dumped in the police file and never brought before the court. He further stated that the FIR was clubbed with another massacre case by the police, which the police had no power to do and could only be done by the court.
Senior Advocate, H.S. Phoolka stated that this is a big manipulation from the police’s side. The reason that this FIR was not pursued by the police is because Sajjan Kumar is an accused. He further stated that when the police could not remove his name from the chargesheet (FIR 67/87), they completely forgot about it.
The court fixed the matter for further proceedings for May 15, 2010.
