New Delhi, August 11

A Delhi court on Friday granted 10 days to senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler to examine the CBI chargesheet and other documents in the Pul Bangash killings case related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Vidhi Gupta Anand passed the order after an application was moved by Tytler’s counsel seeking two weeks for scrutiny of documents supplied to him by the court. The ACMM will now take up the matter on August 21.

Tytler appeared through video-conferencing after the court granted him permission for it owing to security reasons. Earlier, Special Judge Vikas Dhull had granted anticipatory bail to Tytler in the case.

Around 3,000 people, mostly Sikhs, had died in the riots in Delhi in the aftermath of assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984. Three persons were killed and a gurdwara was torched in the Pul Bangash area on November 1, 1984, a day after the assassination.

In its chargesheet filed before the court on May 20, the CBI said Tytler “incited” the mob that had assembled at Pul Bangash Gurdwara in Azad Market on November 1, 1984, that resulted in the burning down of the gurdwara and killing of three Sikhs. (With PTI Inputs)
