New Delhi, Apr 2 (ANI): Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on Thursday said the Central Bureau of Investigation's clean chit to him had once again proved his innocence in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
"I was given clean chit earlier also. But a political conspiracy was hatched against me. I am innocent. The truth has come out once again," said Tytler, the Congress candidate from North-East Delhi.
He also blamed the media for keeping the issue alive.
"It is the media which has been keeping the issue alive. I am happy today that the truth has prevailed. I will fight the election. I am hundred percent sure that I will get the votes from all sections of society," he added.
The CBI had earlier told a Delhi court that it wanted to close the probe against Tytler as it did not have sufficient evidence to proceed on the matter.
The court, however, rejected the plea.
Tytler was among the three prominent leaders named in the reports on anti-Sikh riots, the other two being Sajjan Kumar and the late H. K. L. Bhagat. (ANI)
