Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Oct 24 (UNI) For 72-year-old Nirmal Singh, a 1984 riot victim, fate smiled after 22 years of ordeal when he got his FIR, seeking restoration of his property, registered yesterday.

The FIR, registered under Sections 420, 468 and 470 of the IPC at Gandhi Nagar police station in East Delhi yesterday, was against 13 'entities' including five sons of accused Khacheru Singh (now dead), Delhi Police Commissioner, DCP (East), ACP and SHO (Gandhi Nagar) among others.

Seeking restoration of his house, Singh, a resident of Dharampura in Jain Mohalla of Gandhi Nagar, in his FIR said he had returned to his home town in Panipat (Haryana) soon after the anti-Sikh riots but found it illegally occupied by the accused on return.

He made a complaint with the police but to no avail.

After running from pillar to post for nearly 22 years, when Nirmal Singh failed to get justice he took refuge with the Delhi High Court, under the aegis of the 'All India Riot Victim Relief Committee', which took up the matter on August 21 this year and later ordered the police to file the FIR.
