Impartiality at Stake

In November 1984, following the assassination of Indira Gandhi, almost 3,000 Sikhs were slaughtered and burnt to death in Delhi. Witnesses and survivors of these killings categorically indicted the Delhi Police and some leaders of the Congress (I) for permitting the mobs to kill with impunity. Twenty-three years later the families of the victims are still awaiting justice.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed an appeal before the Delhi High Court, against the acquittal of Congress (I) member of Parliament Sajjan Kumar, in a case pertaining to the murder of one Nevin Singh, husband of Anwar Kaur on November 1, 1984 at Sultanpuri. Senior advocate S S Gandhi appeared on behalf of the CBI to argue the appeal on March 12, 2007.
