1984 Sikh Riots: Chargesheet filed against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler

New Delhi: In the case of anti-Sikh riots that broke out across the country after the assassination of former PM Indira Gandhi, Jagdish Tytler, a veteran Congress leader and considered close to the Gandhi family, seems to be facing increasing difficulties. The CBI probing the anti-Sikh riots has filed a new charge sheet in the court in the case of anti-Sikh riots, in which many allegations have been leveled against Jagdish Tytler.

In the new charge sheet filed by the CBI, Jagdish Tytler has been accused of inciting the crowd and inciting riots. It has also been said in the CBI charge sheet that after being instigated by Jagdish Tytler, the same mob had set Pul Bangash Gurdwara on fire. 3 Sikhs were burnt alive due to the incident of setting fire to Pul Bangash Gurdwara. Charges have been made against Jagdish Tytler under sections 147, 148, 149, 153 (a), 188 as well as 109, 302, 295 and 436 of the IPC. Let us inform that the CBI probing the anti-Sikh riots had recently also taken a sample of Jagdish Tytler's voice, this sample was taken in the CFSL lab. In this regard, it was said by the CBI that some new evidence has come to the fore in the anti-Sikh riots, for which Tytler's voice sample has been taken.

Nanavati Commission was formed in the year 2000:-

After the assassination of Indira Gandhi, anti-Sikh riots broke out across the country. Atal Bihari Vajpayee's government (BJP) constituted the Nanavati Commission in the year 2000 to investigate these riots. The Nanavati Commission submitted its report to the Manmohan Singh government (Congress) in the year 2005. The Nanavati Commission had made some important observations in its report regarding the involvement of Congress leaders in the anti-Sikh riots. Along with this, the Nanavati Commission had recommended that out of total 214 FIRs registered regarding the anti-Sikh riots, 4 cases should be investigated by the CBI. These included the case of setting fire to the Pulbangash Gurdwara in North Delhi on 1 November 1984, in which 3 Sikhs were burnt alive. 

CBI had put closure report: –

On the other hand, the CBI had earlier filed a closure report in the case against Jagdish Tytler. However, the sessions court did not accept the closure report filed by the CBI. At the same time, Suresh Kumar, another accused in this case, was acquitted by the court in the year 2014 due to lack of evidence. In the year 2018, Manjit Singh GK got tapes from a businessman. In which it was claimed that in a sting operation, Congress leader Jagdish Tytler had accepted his involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. However, even after 39 years of the Sikh Genocide, many people have not got justice, now after the charge sheet has been filed against Jagdish Tytler, it will be interesting to see how far this case goes.
