Last December, the Delhi High Court convicted Sajjan Kumar for killing five Sikhs in the Delhi Cantonment area of Southwest Delhi and setting fire to a Gurdwara in Raj Nagar on November 1 and 2, 1984.
The High Court convicted Kumar after reversing the verdict of a trial court in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
