Sikh genocide 1984: Delhi court rejects CBI closure report against Jagdish Tytler

December 5, 2015 | By

New Delhi: A Delhi court reportedly directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) yesterday to conduct further investigation in a case related to November 1984 Sikh massacre against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler. Tyler was earlier granted “clean chit” by the CBI.

As per information Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate S. P. S. Laler said there were some aspects which were required to be probed further in the matter and “the purpose of investigation was to unearth true facts and CBI may do all that is required to achieve that goal”.

The order came on a special petition filed by 1984 Sikh genocide victim Lakhvinder Kaur, whose husband Badal Singh was killed in the Pulbangash massacre. She had challenged the CBI’s closure report exonerating Sikh genocide 1984 accused Jagdish Tytler in this case.

Referring to a judgment of a superior court, the court also said as closure reports had been filed in the case several times, so “it would be in the interest of justice if the investigation is monitored by the court on bi-monthly basis so that no aspect of the case is left uninvestigated”.

“With these directions, the CBI is directed to conduct further investigation in the present case. Be listed for further proceedings on February 2, 2016,” the judge said.

The case pertains to genocidal violence against the Sikhs on November 1, 1984 at Gurdwara Pulbangash in north Delhi. Three Sikhs were reduced to ashes in this massacre.

The CBI had re-investigated the case of killing of Badal Singh, Thakur Singh and Gurcharan Singh near the Gurdwara after a court had in December 2007 refused to accept the closure report.

The court also dealt with the contention of senior counsel HS Phoolka, who appeared for the complainant, that a separate FIR should be registered against Jagdish Tytler under Sections 193 (giving false/fabricated evidence) and 195A (threatening any person to give false evidence) of the IPC and under the Money Laundering Act.
