Angry over a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, a community group in the US has alleged that the CBI did not investigate material witnesses in the case when its team came to the United States.
The Sikh group based in New York and India, Sikhs for Justice, says there are several witnesses living in the US who had seen the Congress leader inciting mobs in the killings.
Sikhs for Justice, which had originally challenged CBI’s closure report in 2007 are now preparing to challenge the Delhi court’s decision to acquit Tytler, citing the new witnesses that have still not been heard.
"The CBI did not investigate material witnesses when they came to the United States and they came with the premeditated notion of giving Tytler a clean chit," Gurpatwant Pannun, the lawyer for the Sikhs for Justice, said.
"The CBI should come back and speak to these witnesses who saw what happened," he added, noting that the Sikh group would ask the court to direct the CBI to hear these witnesses.
