Re-open case against Tytler, orders Delhi court

New Delhi, April 10 (IANS) A Delhi court Wednesday ordered the reopening of a case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Additional Sessions Judge Anuradha Shukla Bajaj also set aside the Central Bureau of Investigation closure report which gave a clean chit to Tytler, claiming there was no evidence against him.

The court’s order came on a plea filed by a riots’ victim who sought further probe in the killing of three people near Gurdwara Pul Bangash in central Delhi.

Tytler is accused of instigating a mob that led to the murder of three men who had taken shelter at the gurdwara Nov 1, 1984.

The mob attack was part of violence against Sikhs after the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi Oct 31, 1984.
