Sikhs burn Sajjan Kumar’s effigy

Shimla, May 3 (IANS) Various Sikh groups Friday staged protests and burnt effigies of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar here over his acquittal in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

On the nationwide call by Sikh organisations, members of the Guru Singh Sabha organised a protest and burnt effigies of Congress leaders Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Titler.

Guru Singh Sabha president Jasvinder Singh blamed the UPA government and its chairperson Sonia Gandhi for not taking action against the culprits responsible for anti-Sikh riots, brutal killings and arson.

The Sikh groups are angry as a Delhi court acquitted Sajjan Kumar in a case related to the killing of five people in the Delhi Cantonment area during violence against Sikhs following the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi Oct 31, 1984.

The court, however, convicted five others in the case.
