police kept quite during 1984 riots

Adv P & H High Court Chandigarh

The CBI on Saturday told a Delhi court hearing a case related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar that police kept their eyes closed during the carnage.

While advancing the final arguments, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) counsel RS Cheema said: “This was a case where the police acted in a pre-planned manner and every policemen was keeping his eyes closed.”

Cheema told Additional Sessions Judge JR Aryan that 150 complaints were made regarding the riot related incidents but only five cases were registered by police.


He told court that police officials, who testified as defence witnesses, said in their statements that they had not seen anything during the riots.


The court asked the prosecutor to show any direct evidence against Sajjan Kumar and other five accused that they were instigating mob to kill the Sikhs.


The CBI prosecutor told the court that he would present some media reports April 2, the next date of hearing.


Sajjan Kumar and the other five accused are facing trial on the charge of inciting mobs against the Sikh community during the riots that had broken out after the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi October 31, 1984.


Whether police acted or not is useless question because police is a political tool and acts according to instructions of political masters everywhere. Same thing also happened in Gujrat in 2002-3 and everywhere all the time. The main question is why people's right to keep and bear arms that has been guaranteed under Article 19 and 21 of the Constitution has been subverted by subterfuge under Arms Act 1959? If people are armed then they will not suffer injustice from government backed goondaas and criminals. Exactly for this reason they are disarmed so that they can be massacared in a systematic manner by State.
