1984 riots: Supreme Court to hear Sajjan Kumar`s plea today
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the petition by the Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, who along with others have been accused of murder in the 1984 Sikh riots, seeking quashing of charges against them.
The Congress leader had earlier filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking quashing of charges against them on the grounds that their plea is still pending before the apex court.
However, the apex court had refused to stay the trial proceedings.
Earlier, the trial court and high court had dismissed the plea seeking quashing of charges against them.
Kumar, a former Lok Sabha MP from Outer Delhi, and five others were tried in the case dealing with the killing of five Sikhs - Kehar Singh, Gurpreet Singh, Raghuvender Singh, Narender Pal Singh and Kuldeep Singh, who were members of the same family, by a mob in Delhi Cantonment`s Raj Nagar area.
The case against Kumar and others was registered in 2005 on a recommendation by Justice GT Nanavati Commission. CBI had filed two charge sheets against him and the other accused in January 2010.
