Sajjan Kumar Senior Congress Leader accused in 84 Sikh Massacre in Delhi post Indiraji's Assasination by a Sikh body gaurd.

he Supreme Court today refused to interfere with the Delhi High Court order granting anticipatory bail to senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases.

“We are not inclined to interfere with the Delhi High Court order,” a bench headed by Justice P Sathasivam said.

The court pointed out that the background of the case is peculiar and considering all the circumstances, there is nothing wrong in grant of anticipatory bail.

The court dismissed the petitions filed by families of the riot victims.

Giving a political colour to the case, senior advocate and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad, who appeared on behalf of one of the petitioners, submitted that the victims of 1984 riots should be given equal treatment like that of victims of Gujarat riots.
