Witness alleges implication for naming Sajjan an accused
New Delhi: A woman, whose father was killed in 1984 anti-Sikh riots, on Wednesday alleged before a Delhi court trying senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar that she had named the politician in 1984 as an accused but instead of any action being taken against him, she was implicated in false cases.
"In 1984 itself, I had named Sajjan Kumar but no action was taken. Rather, I was implicated in many cases and no action was taken even when many other persons had named him. Therefore, I had lost faith," witness Nirpreet Kaur told Additional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta.
The 42-year-old witness made the statement while being cross examined by the counsel Anil Kumar Sharma and S A Hashmi as to why she did not make a statement before the Nanavati Commission.
The woman, who had remained in jail after being booked in three different cases registered under now-repealed Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA), was also questioned about her alleged implication.
To a question whether how she pursued the case relating to the killing of her father Nirmal Singh, Kaur said "I asked the lawyers who were representing me to give representation regarding the killing of my father but they told me that since I was speaking against MP and MLA, who will hear me."
