Cbi: CBI files chargesheet against Congress’ Jagdish Tytler in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case | India News

NEW DELHI: The CBI on Saturday filed a chargesheet against senior Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in connection with a case in North Delhi pertaining to the anti-Sikh riots in 1984.
Three people were killed when a gurudwara was set on fire in the Bara Hindu Rao area of the capital on November 1 of that year.
The Congress leader has been charged with a range of offences, including rioting, abetting murder and violating prohibitory orders.
The CBI had registered this case on November 22, 2005. The chargesheet has been filed almost four decades after the incident and nearly 18 years after the case was lodged in the matter.
The riots had broken out following the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31.

‘Accused instigated, incited, provoked mob during riots’
This particular case in which the chargesheet has been filed pertained to an incident wherein Gurudwara Pul Bangash at Azad Market in Bara Hindu Rao locality of North Delhi was set on fire by a mob and three persons – Sardar Thakur Singh, Badal Singh and Gurcharan Singh – were burnt to death on November 1, 1984, officials said.
“Justice Nanavati Commission of Inquiry was set up in the year 2000 by the Government of India to enquire into the incidents of anti-Sikh riots of the year 1984 in Delhi. After consideration of the Commission’s report, the Union home ministry had issued directions to CBI to investigate the case against then Member of Parliament and others,” said a CBI spokesperson.
During CBI’s investigation, evidences came on record that the accused allegedly instigated, incited and provoked the mob assembled at Gurudwara Pul Bangash which resulted in burning of the gurudwara and killing of three Sikh persons by the mob, apart from burning and looting of shops.
“After a thorough and pain-staking investigation, a chargesheet has been filed on Saturday,” the spokesperson added. The charge sheet was filed in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM), Rouse Avenue District Court. The court will consider the charges on June 2.
CBI has filed the chargesheet under IPC sections 109 read with 302 (abetment to murder), 147/148 (rioting with a deadly weapon), 149 (member of an unlawful assembly), 153-A (spreading communal disharmony), 188 (disobedience of prohibitory order), 295 (defiling a place of worship) 436 (mischief by fire or explosive).
On April 11 this year, the agency had recorded Tytler’s voice samples in the case to match it from the voice from a sting operation video/audio clip submitted to it. The CBI had filed a closure report against Tytler earlier but the sessions court did not accept it. An accused named Suresh Kumar was acquitted in 2014 due to lack of evidence. In 2018, CBI had stumbled on some tapes from a businessman wherein it was claimed that Tytler in a sting operation had purportedly claimed he was involved in 1984 anti Sikh riots. The cops then started taking a fresh look at the case.
