1984 Anti- Sikh Riots: Supreme Court grants 2 more months to complete probe into 186 cases
The Supreme Court today agreed to give a two-month extension to Special Investigation Team to complete its probe into 186 cases of 1984 anti-Sikh Riots. A Bench comprising of Justices S A Bobde and S Abdul Nazeer extended the time after SIT informed the court that half of their work has been done. And, it just needs two months extension to complete the rest.
On a plea by petitioner S Gurlad Singh Kahlon, a member of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, Supreme Court issued a notice to the parties to seek inquiry into the role of 62 policemen named in the case.
On January 11, the Supreme Court formed SIT headed by former Delhi High Court judge Justice S N Dhingra, retired IPS officer Rajdeep Singh and serving IPS officer Abhishek Dular. The SIT was formed to oversee the further probe into the 186 riots cases. After Rajdeep Singh declined to be a part of the SIT, now it is working with two members on board.
