New Delhi, Apr 27: In a major relief to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, accused in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, a Delhi Court has accepted Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report seeking closure of case against him.

A trial court in Delhi gave a clean chit to the Tytler on the grounds that the Congress leader was not present at the site where the riots broke out.

The Court said that there is no evidence to prove that Tytler has incited the mob.

On Apr 22, the CBI had filed a second closure report, after its first closure report was rejected by the court in 2007.

Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Rakesh Pandit said that statements of the witnesses recorded by the CBI were irrelevant and were self contradictory.
