New Delhi: The CBI on Monday failed to submit to a Delhi court its written arguments in reply to a 1984 anti-Sikh riot victim claim that there was enough material to proceed against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler but the CBI had "deliberately" given him clean chit in the case.

The probe agency was directed by Additional Sessions Judge K S Pal to file its written arguments to rebut complainant Lakhwinder Kaur's claim that the CBI deliberately exonerated Tytler.

The court sought the CBI's reply by April 30, the next date of hearing even as the probe agency said it can make oral submissions.

Lakhwinder Kaur had in February this year moved the court against a magisterial court's decision to accept the CBI's report to close a riot case against Tytler.

In her written submissions, Kaur had sought the court's directions to the CBI to re-investigate the matter "to bring on record the available incriminating evidence against the accused (Tytler) in the interest of justice."
