New Delhi: A united opposition today cornered the government in the Rajya Sabha accusing it of cosmetic action into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and forced adjournment of the House 30 minutes ahead of lunch break.
Raising the issue during zero hour, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa (Akali Dal) said so many commissions and committees were set up to go into the riots but none gave justice to the victims. He said more than 7,000 Sikhs including 3,000 in Delhi were killed.
A Delhi court two days back accepted CBI's clean chit to Tytler in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. The court said no further investigations are required and there is no need to send the accused for trial.
BJP members including SS Ahluwalia said there is only cosmetic action by the government into the issue and alleged that witnesses were threatened.
