New Delhi, Dec 18 (UNI) Delhi BJP chief Harsh Vardhan today demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself monitor the fresh enquiry by the CBI into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving former union minister Jagdish Tytler.

The BJP leader accused the CBI of trying to protect the Congress leaders involved in the Sikh massacre and said the investigating agency is under great pressure from the government.

''Dr Singh himself belongs to the Sikh community and if the Sikhs do not get justice during his tenure, they will lose faith in law.

It will lead to terrorism and also create problem of social isintegration,'' he said.

The BJP leader alleged that the present UPA Government was adopting double standards in the case and said while the Government is protecting the accused of 1984 riots and Nandigram cases, it is shedding crocodile tears on the Godhara case.

Rejecting the CBI's report giving clean chit to Tytler and seeking closure of the riots case, a Delhi Court today ordered reinvestigation into the case.

The Additional Chief Metropolitan said the matter needed to be further investigated and directed the CBI to submit its report by January 16, 2008.
