New Delhi, Apr 9: The Kakardooma Court will on Thursday, Apr 9 decide the fate of former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
The court may decide on accepting the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) closure report against Tytler and ordering the quashing of charges against him or order fresh investigation into the case.
On Apr 2, Tytler was given a clean chit by the CBI in the case. De-sealing its final investigation report in a court, the CBI recommended quashing of FIR against Tytler.
The CBI counsel told Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rakesh Pandit, that we have filed the cancellation report in the matter and want to close the investigation.
H S Phoolka, counsel for the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, raised objections over the alleged leak of the report to Tytler who had claimed innocence in the case.
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.
