New Delhi, Nov 29 (UNI) Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjeeb Jain today adjourned the hearing of the case against former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler, in connection with the anti-Sikh riot case, to December 6.
Earlier, the CBI had filed a closure report against the Congress leader stating that the witnesses in this case were not available, as either they are dead or did not want to testify.
However, Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) has filed an application before the court that without hearing the victims, the CBI cannot close the case. They also cited that the CBI has not recorded the statement of one witness Jasbir Singh.
The court asked SGPC to furnish to CBI the address of Jasbir Singh, who is presently said to be residing in US.
Tytler was facing a charge of inciting people to violence on November 3, 1984, after the assassination of former prime minister Indira Gandhi.
