Anti-Sikh riots: Order on June 2 on Sajjan`s plea
New Delhi: A Delhi court will pronounce its order on June 2 on a plea of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, facing trial in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, asking if witnesses can be confronted with their affidavits submitted to the judicial commissions set up to examine riot cases.
District Judge J R Aryan today reserved its order after hearing arguments of the counsel for CBI and accused.
The former Outer Delhi MP has filed an application that prosecutor R S Cheema had on July 12, 2010, made a statement in the court that affidavits and statement of key witness and complainant Jagdish Kaur recorded by G T Nanavati and Ranganath Mishra Commissions cannot be used because of contradictions.
CBI, in its response to the application, said the accused, by filing these kind of pleas, were delaying the proceedings of the case which is at its concluding stage.
"They are not doing anything but they are just delaying the process by filing this application, this plea is void. We have to see whether this is maintainable," Cheema argued.
