CBI seeks prosecution of Kumar in `84 riots cases

New Delhi: CBI today sought prosecution of
former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar and others for the killing
four persons during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots here.

Arguing before Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta,
senior counsel R S Cheema alleged Kumar, a former outer Delhi
MP, had incited a mob which killed the four persons near
Delhi Cantonment.

Cheema, appearing for CBI, also sought framing of charges
against Kumar for being involved in sedition saying he had
incited one group of people against another.

CBI concluded the arguments in the case in which Kumar
and other accused are likely to put forth their rebuttal
tomorrow during the arguments on charges.

The court, which is hearing the arguments on charges,
allowed CBI`s plea to separate the two cases in which it had
filed chargesheets against Kumar and others.

CBI had filed two chargesheets on January 13 in the riots
cases registered on the recommendation of Justice G T Nanavati
Commission which had inquired into the sequence of events
leading to the riots in the aftermath of the assassination of
the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
