SC directs examination of Sajjans health condition

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed that former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, sentenced for life in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, be examined by a panel of AIIMS doctors, after he sought urgent listing of his bail plea on health grounds. Kumar was awarded life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court on December 17 last year. The Supreme Court has also asked for a report in four weeks from the panel of doctors constituted by the AIIMS director. A bench headed by Justice S A Bobde said it will hear the bail application of Kumar in the summer vacation next year.
