1984 riots case: CBI seeks four months’ time to complete probe
CBI on Tuesday told a Delhi court that it needed at least four months to complete its further probe in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in which Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was earlier given a clean chit.
The probe agency made the submission before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Shivali Sharma who directed it to expedite the investigation and file a final report.
“You (CBI) file a final report. Tell me how much more time you want to complete the probe. Its an endless process.
You file a final report and I will consider it. Expedite the probe and also give me the time frame,” the magistrate said.
CBI officials said they were waiting for the response of some agencies which will take time and sought four more months to complete the probe, after which the court fixed the matter for February 16.
CBI’s Superintendent of Police, who is supervising the investigation, told the court that they are making all efforts to complete the probe and an official recently spoke to Narinder Singh, son of a prime witness against Tytler in Canada, but he has refused to join probe.
