1984 anti-Sikh riots: Probe against Jagdish Tytler to continue, says Supreme Court
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday rejected Congress leader Jagdish Tytler`s plea seeking a stay on the probe against him in the 1984 Sikh riots case, as the matter is pending in Delhi High Court.
According to reports, the SC said that the probe against Tytler will continue.
Tytler had moved the court challenging the trial court order setting aside the CBI`s closure report giving him clean chit in the 29-year-old case and directing the probe agency to examine eye-witnesses and people claiming to have information about the riots.
Tytler is accused of instigating a mob that led to the murder of three men who had taken shelter at the gurdwara on November 1, 1984.
The mob attack was part of the violence against Sikhs after the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31 that year by her bodyguards.
