Govt would provide lawyers to victims in ’84 Sikh riot cases: Kejriwal


Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal today said that the state government had formed an SIT on 1984 riots and also stated that the government would provide lawyers to victims in 1984 Sikh riot cases.

Addressing the media, the CM said, “We  will cooperate fully with the Centre on this, will keep providing help to the victims of 1984 riots.”

Earlier AAP MLA Jarnail Singh had accused the BJP, SAD and Congress of “working in tandem” to absolve Tytler of his alleged involvement in the riots in which over 3,000 people died. Tytler has earlier been given a clean chit in the case.

“Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) decision to give a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler, prime accused in 1984 Sikh genocide shows that BJP-Akali and Congress are working in tandem to put their sins of 1984 and 2002 violence under the carpet. They have struck a deal,” he said.
