1984 riots: Delhi HC refuses to stay Sajjan Kumar’s arrest
New Delhi: Spelling more trouble for Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to entertain an anticipatory bail plea seeking a stay on his imminent arrest in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases.
The Delhi High Court, while rejecting the plea, asked Kumar to present himself before the Karkarduma lower court, failing which he can be arrested.
The disgraced Congress leader is due to appear in the lower court at around 3 pm today.
Sajjan Kumar had earlier approached the Delhi High Court seeking a stay on his arrest in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases.
Kumar, a former MP from Outer Delhi, filed an appeal against the lower court order which yesterday had refused to grant anticipatory bail to him.
In his petition Kumar pleaded that the lower court had wrongly rejected his plea on the ground that only the court which had issued summons can grant bail to him.
