Delhi/Ludhiana (October 02, 2009) In first week of November 1984 (AD) thousands of Sikhs were massacred in Delhi, the Capital of India and other cities and States but even after almost 25 years there are no signs of Justice for Sikhs as a Delhi court on September 30, 2009 acquitted three persons accused of leading a mob that lynched a man during 1984 Sikh Massacre here. Additional Sessions Judge Pinki acquitted Jagdish Singh, Sajjan Singh and Ishwar Singh, who were charged with leading a mob of murderers which allegedly killed Gurbakshish Singh outside his residence in Paschim Vihar locality on November one, 1984, during the violance that followed the assassination of the then prime minister of India Indira Gandhi.
The police took almost eight years to register FIR after the incident under various sections of Indian Penal Code 1860 (45 of 1860) dealing with rioting, looting, arson and murder.
Father of the victim, Swaran Singh Bhatia, who was forced to leave the country after the incident, had come from Canada last year to depose in the case. Bhatia had testified that the mob, which had besieged his house, was not stopped by the policemen who remained mute spectators during the entire episode. It seems that there is no justice for Sikhs and other struggling nations in this ‘largest democracy on earth’ called India.
