New Delhi, January 27, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
Sikh community got huge success in securing justice in 1984 Sikh genocide cases when Delhi High Court issued notice to Special Investigation Team (SIT) and summoned status report on a case against Congress leader Kamalnath.
Disclosing this in a statement issued here today, BJP Sikh leader Mr. Manjinder Singh Sirsa said he had filed a case in Delhi High Court in matter of FIR No 601/1984 Parliament Street Police station against Kamalnath in 1984 genocide and had sought directions to SIT to take action against Kamalnath in the above FIR and he should be arrested without further delay.
Mr. Sirsa said that this case was related to murder of two Sikhs at Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib during 1984 Sikh genocide. He said that we had given representations to SIT and witnesses had also deposed against him in the case. Special permission was taken from Home Ministry that to reopen case related with Kamalnath. He said that despite these representations, SIT was not acting against him, so we had moved High Court.
He said that this case was today listed before bench of Justice Subramonium Prasad. He said that from our side Senior Advocate Maninder Singh and Advocate Gurbaksh Singh presented arguments. He further disclosed that Honourable Court after hearing arguments for both sides issued notice to SIT and summoned status report and steps taken on our representations. Court has listed next hearing for March 28, 2022.
Mr. Sirsa said that it has been more than 37 years since Sikh community is awaiting justice in these cases. He said that though some success was achieved with sentencing of Sajjan Kumar to life imprisonment but still much more is to be done as other guilty Kamalnath and other congressmen are yet to be tried and sentenced.
He said that today’s decision of the High Court has rekindled a hope in the community that every guilty will get punishment for his sins. He said that he was personally pursuing matter in different courts and with the community will ensure that justice is delivered in every case and every guilty is sentenced to life imprisonment or given capital punishment.
