1984 anti-Sikh riots: SC to hear Sajjan Kumar’s petition against conviction on Jan 14

Kumar had challenged Delhi High Court’s conviction and life imprisonment sentence on Dec 22.

After surrendering before the Karkardooma Court in Delhi, the 73-year-old was sent to Mandoli jail where he is currently lodging.

Sajjan Kumar was convicted and sentenced to life by the Delhi High Court on Dec 17 in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Raj Nagar area.

The case relates to killing of five Sikhs in Raj Nagar part-I area in Palam Colony in South West Delhi on Nov 1-2, 1984, and burning down a Gurudwara in Raj Nagar part II during that period.

In its judgment, the High Court had noted that over 2,700 Sikhs were killed in the national capital during the 1984 riots which was indeed a “carnage of unbelievable proportions”.

It had said the riots were a “crime against humanity” perpetrated by those who enjoyed “political patronage” and aided by an “indifferent” law enforcement agency.

The High Court had set aside the trial court’s 2010 verdict which had acquitted Kumar in the case.

After his conviction in the case, Kumar had resigned from the Congress party.
