Amritsar: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister
Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday said the Supreme Court would soon be
moved seeking cancellation of bail for Congress leader Sajjan
Kumar in an anti-Sikh riot case.
Badal, President of Shiromani Akali Dal, alleged CBI on
the direction of Congress was "hell bent on scuttling" the
trial of the case relating to Kumar.
He said the apex court should immediately order
day-to-day trial of 25 year-old cases of 1984 anti-Sikh riots
to expedite justice delivery.
Badal told mediapersons here that Shiromani Akali Dal
would also request the Supreme Court to monitor the trial of
’84 riot cases on day-to-day basis as is being done in 2002
Gujarat riot cases to ensure justice to families of Sikh
He alleged people have "lost faith in the impartiality"
of CBI and Shiromani Akali Dal would request the apex court to
constitute a Special Investigation Team of police officers
with impeccable record to investigate the 25- year-old case,
collect evidence, provide protection to witnesses and to
pursue the cases for prosecution till all culprits were
provided exemplary punishment.
He also questioned the motive of CBI of deliberately
letting off Congress leader Jagdish Tytler who also faces
anti-Sikh riot cases.
