Anti-Sikh riots: SC refuses relief to Jagdish Tytler

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain the plea of Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, who sought a stay on an order of a trial court directing the CBI to conduct further probe into the former union minister’s role in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. An apex court bench said the apex court should not interfere in the matter at this stage as the case is pending in the Delhi high court.

Earlier, the high court had refused to stay the probe saying, ‘Only investigation is ordered and this court will not stop the investigation.’ A trial court in Karakardooma had ordered reopening of a case against him, setting aside the CBI closure report. Tytler is accused of instigating a mob that led to the murder of three men who had taken shelter at a gurdwara on 1 November, 1984. The attack was part of the violence against Sikhs after the assassination of Indira Gandhi.
