The Delhi High Court today issued notices to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Delhi Government for the appointment of Special Public Prosecutors to expedite the trial of 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases pending before the trial courts. A Bench comprising Chief Justice A P Shah and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw asked the CBI and the Delhi Government to file the status report in this regard by February 3. Acting on a petition filed by the 1984 Carnage Justice Committee, seeking speedy trial of more than 30 pending cases, including cases against former MPs Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler, and a day-to-day basis trial in the cases, the Court issued notices to the respondents. The petitioners have sought that Public Prosecutors be appointed at earliest for the speedy disposal of the pending cases. Former parliamentarians Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler are amongst those accused of instigating mobs that killed over 3,000 Sikhs across Delhi after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in October 1984.
