New Delhi, Jan 30: Around 300 Sikh protesters broke barricades and chanted slogans outside the Congress headquarters in New Delhi on Thursday morning.

The Sikh bodies were demanding action against Congress leaders who were involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

The protests erupted after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, in his very first TV interview, admitted that some Congress leaders might have been involved.

The 1984 riots followed the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards, and led to thousands of deaths.
