The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee submitted two CDs against Tytler in connection with his alleged involvement in the case.

The court also reprimanded the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for its “slow investigation” into the case along with directing the Superintendent of Police (SP) to file a status report on February 24.

Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Naresh Gujral met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, seeking the arrest of Tytler in connection with the riots early in February. 

Akali Dal leader Manjit Singh GK earlier claimed of having a CD, in which Tytler admitted his role in the riots.

According to official records, about 2,800 Sikhs were killed across India, including 2,100 in Delhi, during the pogrom that broke out after the then prime minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards.
