1984 riots: HC seeks CBI’s reply

Delhi High Court on Monday sought the response of CBI and the two persons, who were sentenced to three years in jail for rioting in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, on the plea of victims’ families challenging the trial court verdict acquitting them of murder charges.

A bench of justices G S Sistani and G P Mittal sought CBI’s response by August 27 on the appeal of Jagdish Kaur and Nirpreet Kaur who have challenged the trial court’s April 30 order acquitting ex-MLA Mahender Yadav and Kishan Khokkar from the charges of murder.
Congress leader Sajjan Kumar’s acquittal has also been challenged in the HC which is likely to come up for hearing on Wednesday.
The bench also called for the trial court record in the case on the next date of hearing.
