Supreme Court Accepts Sajjan Kumar’s Plea and Seeks CBI’s Response


The jailed 1984 anti-Sikh riot prime convict Sajjan Kumar bail plea has been accepted by the Supreme Court on Monday against the decision of Delhi High Court punished on him.

The Apex Court has accepted his plea and has furnished an order to the CBI to give its response on this matter within six weeks time.

Sajjan Kumar was convicted by the Delhi High Court on December 17, 2018 for life imprisonment. The Supreme Court had earlier quashed Sajjan Kumar’s plea of giving an extra one month time for his surrender earlier dated by Delhi HC on December 31 last year.

After the top court’s disapproval, Sajjan had presented himself before the Karkardooma Court (local Delhi court) on December 31.

Sajjan Kumar was incriminated by the Delhi High Court for being responsible for the killing of five members of a Sikh family in the riots after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by two of her Sikh bodyguards in 1984.
