New Delhi, India (May 31, 2013): It is learnt that an Indian politician Jagdish Tytler has moved the Delhi high court against the trial court’s decision to reopen investigation against him in a November 1984 Sikh massacre related case against him. This case relates to the brutal killings of three innocent Sikhs.
Jagdish Tytler has enjoys state patronage. No proper investigation or trial has taken place against him in last 29 years. The investigation in this case had started on the recommendations of Nanavati Commission that had submitted it’s report in 2005. The premier investigative agency of India, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a closure report in this case in 2009. On April 27, 2010 the lower court had accepted the closure report submitted by CBI.
But the victims of 1984 genocide challenged the order of lower court in the court of Additional Sessions Judge. In April 2013 the court of Additional Sessions Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj set aside the lower court’s order and directed the CBI to investigate the case Jagdish Tytler.
“The CBI is directed to conduct further investigation in the light of aforesaid facts and to record the statements of witnesses, who it had come to know during the investigation itself, are claiming/shown/named to be the eye witnesses of the incident,” Additional Sessions Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj had said.
Now Jagdish Tytler has moved the Delhi High Court against the order passed by Additional Sessions Judge.
According to media reports the appeal is likely to be listed on Friday, May 31, for hearing.
“The trial court order is contrary to the scheme of code of Cr. P. C. The method and mode of investigation by a probe agency is the absolute prerogative of the agency and it is not for the court to direct the agency that which witness should be examined by it” Jagdish Tytler has reportedly alleged in his petition.
Recently on April 30, 2013 a trial court in Delhi dramatically acquitted Sajjan Kumar another Indian politician who was facing similar charged in Delhi Cantonment Area massacre case.
