A Delhi court on Friday refused to accept the closure report and directed the CBI to conduct further investigation in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Saurabh Pratap Singh Laler ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct further investigation and refused to accept the closure report that gives Tytler a clean chit.

The former union minister Jagdish Tytler, is accused of inciting the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in the national capital after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The 1984 anti-Sikh riots was a dark chapter in India’s political and social history as it claimed the lives of almost 3,000 Sikhs. The riots were triggered by the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984, by her two Sikh bodyguards.
