DSGMC stage massive protest against the move of CBI over clean chit to Jagdish Tytler in 1984 Anti-Sikh Genocide Case
DSGMC president demands that Court should reject CBI clean chit to Tytler and instead make him face trial.
Hundreds Sikhs and supporters of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) today staged huge protest outside the headquarters of Central Bureau of investigation (CBI) against the move of CBI to give clean chit to congress party leader Jagdish Tytler in 1984 anti-Sikh genocide case in which thousands of innocent Sikhs were massacred in brutal manner in Delhi and simultaneously in other parts of the country.
Protesters raised slogans against the CBI and congress party for shielding Tytler. Speaking on the occasion, President of DSGMC Manjit Singh GK said that the clean chit to Tytler was atrocious given in most arbitrary manner. He alleged that CBI at the behest of the congress party which was heading the government of India for ten years till 2014 never conducted thorough investigations against the genocide accused who are a part of congress party. “It is really painful that even 30 years after the genocide; justice to Sikhs is still a distant dream,” said DSGMC president.
The Delhi police used water cannon to stop protesters from entering the CBI headquarters in which number of protesters suffered injuries. Despite being stopped by Delhi police the protesters managed to reach the main gate of CGO complex. Later Delhi police arrested DSGMC president, general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa and former MLAs Harmeet Singh Kalka and Jatinder Singh Shanty and took them to the Lodhi police station.
“Tytler led mobs to kill innocent Sikhs at the behest of Congress party leadership of 1984 and the congress party made all efforts to save Tytler and other leaders of its party accused of killing innocent Sikhs,” said GK adding that that CBI has filed a closure report in the trial court in the month of December last year in a most secret manner giving clean chit to Tytler, and the court also took it into its record. GK was addressing the protestors.
He demanded from the court to deliver justice to Sikhs by rejecting the closure report and asking the CBI to make Tytler face trial.
Calling the investigations carried by CBI as lopsided because a number of witnesses were never heard, Manjit Singh GK sought directions of the court to CBI to examine the left out witnesses and draft a strong chargesheet against Tytler because the fact can never be denied that Tytler had no role in the anti Sikh genocide of 1984 which is the worst and most brutal incident of recent times.
DSGMC president further added that the special investigation team (SIT) constituted by the Bharatiya janata party (BJP) led by national democratic alliance (NDA) government would reopen the case not properly investigated by CBI.
