It is notable that Sajjan Kumar and others are facing charges under ordinary law in India as “genocide” has not been defined or punished under law in India as a specific crime.

The case against Sajjan Kumar was registered in 2005 on recommendation of Nanavati Commission. Two chargesheets were filed against Sajjan Kumar and others by CBI in January 2010.
