Tytler Gets Clean Chit in 1984 Riots Case

Tytler Gets Clean Chit in 1984 Riots Case


Expressing his anger and disappointment over the CBI's closure report giving a clean chit to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in the 1984 riots case, senior advocate HS Phoolka said that he would file a protest petition against it. Calling it a highly sensitive matter of great national importance, he said that the CBI had quietly filed the closure report giving a clean chit to Tytler in the case  in December, 2014.


Tytler was among the three prominent Congress leaders charged in the Sikh riots case. The 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which claimed almost 3000 lives, were triggered by the assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984, by two of her Sikh bodyguards.
