    If not for a Sikh gentleman giving `chappal` treatment to Chidambaram, respected Jagdish Tytler would have stood for elections from Congress party in 1999. So much for Congrass concern for justice.

    Court orders reopening of case against Tytler

    In a big jolt to Jagdish Tytler, a Delhi court on Wednesday ordered reopening of a 1984 anti-Sikhs riots case against him, setting aside a CBI closure report giving clean chit to the Congress leader.

    The CBI was directed to examine eye-witnesses and people claiming to have information about the riots.

    Additional Sessions Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj set aside the order of a magisterial court which accepted CBI’s closure report giving a clean chit to Mr. Tytler.

    “The order of the trial court accepting the closure report is set aside. CBI is directed to conduct the investigation and examine the claimants/eye witnesses in the case,” the judge directed.

    The ASJ’s order came on a plea by the riot victims against the CBI giving a clean chit to Mr. Tytler and filing a closure report.

    During lengthy arguments over the past few months in support of the plea, senior advocate H S Phoolka, appearing for petitioner Lakhwinder Kaur, had submitted that there was material which the agency has ignored and evidence was also there before the trial court against Mr. Tytler.

    “CBI had time to examine Mr. Tytler’s driver, who had deposed in his favour, but they had no time to record the statement of the witnesses who had seen Mr. Tytler at the spot of incident. Are they (CBI) investigating on the command of Tytler?,” he had said.

    The CBI had, however, sought dismissal of the plea filed by the victim saying the probe has made it clear that Mr. Tytler was not present on November 1, 1984 at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three people were killed during the riots.

    Mr. Tytler’s alleged role in the case relating to killing of three persons -- Badal Singh, Thakur Singh and Gurcharan Singh -- near the Gurudwara Pulbangash was re-investigated by the CBI after a court had in December 2007 refused to accept its closure report.

    The CBI claimed that at the time of the incident, Mr. Tytler was at Teen Murti Bhawan, the residence of the then late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and that it has already re-investigated the case on the order of trial court but there was no sufficient evidence against Mr. Tytler.

    CBI had given a clean chit to Mr. Tytler on April 2, 2009 claiming lack of evidence against him in the case pertaining to the murder of three persons on November 1, 1984, in the aftermath of the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

    However, on April 27, 2010, a magistrate had accepted CBI’s closure report in the case against Mr. Tytler, saying there was no evidence to put him on trial.

    The court had allowed CBI’s closure report saying Mr. Tytler was present at Teen Murti Bhawan and was not at the spot of crime and the contentions of CBI were justified by material, including some visual tapes and versions of some independent witnesses.

    One of the witness, Jasbir (now residing in California), in an affidavit, had claimed before the Justice Nanavati Commission that he had heard Tytler on November 3, 1984, rebuking his men for the “nominal killings” carried out in the riots.

    The court had rejected Jasbir’s version, saying he had deposed for something which took place on November 3 while the case related to an incident of November 1, 1984.

    Some of the witnesses had alleged that during the riots, Mr. Tytler was instigating the mob to kill Sikhs, a charge strongly refuted by him.

    Re: 1984 anti-Sikh riots - Court orders reopening of case against Tytl

    In 1999 Manmohan SIngh blamed RSS for anti-Sikh violence. Shameless conscience-less fellow - despite well documented evidence against prominent COngrass leaders who lead mobs, this guy talked like this and betrays his own people. Man of integrity indeed...:mad:

    Manmohan blames RSS for anti-Sikh riots
    September 2, 1999

    Former finance minister Manmohan Singh, Congress candidate for the Lok Sabha from South Delhi, today accused the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, ideological parent of the Bharatiya Janata Party, of being involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh carnage in the capital.

    Addressing reporters at the Press Club of India, Dr Singh said the 1984 riots were "a black spot and the saddest event". But the Congress as an organisation had no role in it, he claimed. "It should not have happened."


    He pointed out that in 1984 he was awarded the Padma Vibhushan by the President of India. Had there been any institutionalised anti-Sikh bias in the Congress, which was then the ruling party, he would not have got the coveted award, he argued.

    The first information reports lodged at different police stations in Delhi prove that several RSS men were involved in the riots, Dr Singh said.

    He dismissed as "BJP propaganda" reports that Sikh voters had asked him during campaigning how they could vote for a party that had "blood on its hands".

    He said the BJP had no right to dictate from where he could contest. "How can they prevent me from contesting an election just because I am a Sikh?" he challenged.

    Though he was non-committal on who would be prime minister if the Congress came to power, Dr Singh said it would be decided by the party after the results are known.

    He said the Congress does not consider it so important to name the prime minister before the election as it is trying to contest on the basis of issues. He said he is against any kind of "gutter politics" and trading of personal charges. The remarks made by Defence Minister George Fernandes and Information and Broadcasting Minister Pramod Mahajan were uncalled for, he said.

    He dared the Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition government to institute an inquiry against him if it was sure that there was a scam when he was governor of the Reserve Bank of India.

    Dr Singh said the possibility of a scandal fuelling the current stock market boom could not be ruled out. He said that though the 1992 securities scandal was detected when he was finance minister, it had begun during the tenure of his predecessor, Yashwant Singh, who is the finance minister again today.

    Dr Singh said his party would review the 'Most Favoured Nation' status given to Pakistan if Islamabad continues to behave in a belligerent manner towards India.

    The BJP's argument in defence of sugar imports from Pakistan under the open general licence does not stand scrutiny as the government could very well have withdrawn the commodity from the OGL category, Dr Singh pointed out.

    Singh also lashed out at the government for its failure on the telecom front, saying that his party favours a review of the policy. He said transparency is absolutely necessary in such matters, but the manner in which Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had acted and the fact that the telecommunications minister was changed after the election was announced tend to give the impression that all is not above board.

    Dr Singh said the Congress is going to the people seeking a clear-cut majority to implement its policies. The question of forming a coalition will be decided only after the results come in.

    Asked if the Congress would join hands with the Left parties in a coalition, he said: "We will cross that bridge when we come to it."

    Answering a stream of questions on economic issues, he said priority would be given to speeding up economic growth while simultaneously emphasising poverty-alleviation programmes.

    Poverty removal will be through enhanced spending on health and education, better delivery systems, greater investment in agriculture and rural development, and expansion of the National Renewal Fund and the Employment Guarantee Scheme.

    He said the BJP's economic agenda is a hotchpotch and its social and political philosophy such that it will take the country back to the 17th century into a world of fundamentalism and narrow nationalistic and parochial goals.

    The Congress agenda, on the other hand, is futuristic, aimed at taking the country into the 21st century by ensuring a better deal for the poor, he said.

    This is utter balatant lie, even a pig can not digest it. Was Mr. bhagat non-congrassi?

    Such white lie statements does not suit to a person at PM position. Though being a sikh , he can not speak his heart out just for the sake of his PM ship.

    Question is, will Tytler take others down with him or show allegiance?

    I believe MMS had apologised in 2005 as well.

    However, apology or not quite clear what Congress's motives are.

    People were criticising Gandhi family on the net, IT act sec 66 resulted. You cant criticise them now.

    Hindus were protecting Sikhs against Congress(govt) and other vested interest backed goons, yet, Congress protected and shielded the goons and is still doing so.

    Congress is not interested in justice, and their attack on BJP for 2002 is a clear case of false equivalency.

    If they had prosecuted and punished the guilty and overhauled the criminal justice system perhaps we would not have seen such riots and insurgencies
