No justice for Sikh Genocide 1984 victims even after 31 years: retired Bombay HC judge, Hosbet Suresh

May 13, 2015 | By

Ahmedabad, India: Strongly criticising the Indian judicial system, retired Bombay High Court Judge Hosbet Suresh today said that despite a genocide taking against the Sikh community in 1984, justice remains outstanding.

Justice Suresh was speaking at an event titled ‘Convention For Reclaiming Democracy’ organised by city-based activists to mark the first death anniversary of late human rights activist and lawyer Mukul Sinha.
He also raised doubts over former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha’s acquittal in a disproportionate assets case.

“Jayalalitha has been acquitted. I can tell you that it is a strange thing. At whose instance did the case go on for 18 years? It was mostly at the instance of prosecution,” Suresh told a large gathering comprising retired High Court judge R A Mehta as well as a number of city-based advocates.

“There is no justice in the case of the 2002 genocide. This is the problem in this country. Justice usually gets delayed in communal riots cases,” he said.

“In the year 1984, genocide was carried out against the Sikh community which has not got justice even today, though 31 years have passed. This is what happens in this country,” he said.

He also raised doubts over alleged extra-judicial killings of 20 people in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh recently.

“Twenty labourers were shot dead by the police inside the forest of Andhra Pradesh’s Chittoor district. I had gone there along with a group of people,” Justice Suresh said.

“We investigated, collected material and put out a report. We named those who did it but till today no case has been registered against those who ordered the killing of those 20 innocent people,” he said.

At the event, two awards named after Mukul Sinha were given away to workers of the Maruti Suzuki plant at Manesar in Haryana and a Manipur-based organisation called Extra-Judicial Execution Victims’ Families Association, for their struggle for human rights.
