New Delhi: The Home Ministry on Tuesday said that four cases in connection with anti-Sikh riots cases in Delhi in 1984 are pending with the competent authority for sanction of prosecution and these do not relate to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.

In a press statement, the Ministry said that in his statement in response to a Calling Attention Motion in Rajya Sabha yesterday and in his further reply Home Minister P Chidambaram had referred to the sole case against Tytler.

"In one case after completion of investigation, charge-sheet was filed in the court on September 28, 2007 and final report, under Section 173 of the CrPC, was filed in the court on March 28, 2009, which is under consideration of the court", the statement said.

The Ministry statement said the other cases do not relate to Tytler.

"In his statement as well as the clarifications, the minister had said that four cases are pending with the competent authority for sanction of prosecution. These cases do not relate to Jagdish Tytler and, in fact, no reference was made to Jagdish Tytler while referring to these four cases," the ministry statement said.
