New Delhi, Jan 12 (PTI) A woman, whose father was killedin 1984 anti-Sikh riots, today alleged before a Delhi courttrying senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar that she had namedthe politician in 1984 as an accused but instead of any actionbeing taken against him, she was implicated in false cases.

"In 1984 itself, I had named Sajjan Kumar but no actionwas taken. Rather, I was implicated in many cases and noaction was taken even when many other persons had named him.

Therefore, I had lost faith," witness Nirpreet Kaur toldAdditional Sessions Judge Sunita Gupta.

The 42-year-old witness made the statement while beingcross examined by the counsel Anil Kumar Sharma and S A Hashmias to why she did not make a statement before the NanavatiCommission.

The woman, who had remained in jail after being bookedin three different cases registered under now-repealedTerrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA),was also questioned about her alleged implication.

To a question whether how she pursued the case relatingto the killing of her father Nirmal Singh, Kaur said "I askedthe lawyers who were representing me to give representationregarding the killing of my father but they told me that sinceI was speaking against MP and MLA, who will hear me."
