New Delhi, Apr 2: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) gave a clean chit to Congress leader and former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler in a case registered against him for the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi.
The CBI is reported to have said that there is no evidence against Tytler, sources said.
The CBI also recommended quashing of FIR against the Congress leader.
On Mar 28, the CBI filed the report in a sealed envelope before Metropolitan Magistrate Ram Lal Meena.
Tytler was among the three prominent leaders named in the reports on anti-Sikh riots. Two other leaders named were Sajjan Kumar and the late HKL Bhagat.
The 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which claimed the lives of almost 3000 Sikhs, were triggered by the assassination of Indira Gandhi on Oct 31, 1984 by two of her Sikh bodyguards.
Speaking to a news channel after CBI gave clean chit, Tytler said :"The case destroyed my career. I have been vindicated."
