Anti-Sikh riots: Will support any probe, says Congress

Besides Justice Dhingra, Abhishek Dular, an IPS officer of Himachal Pradesh cadre and a retired IG rank officer Rajdeep Singh will be other members of the SIT.

The matter will be heard next on March 19. He was recently in news for heading a one-man panel that probed Haryana land scam allegedly involving Robert Vadra. The apex court took this view after getting a report on the SIT investigation into the 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases from two retired SC judges.

The petitioner, Kahlon, a member of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, had reportedly told the Bench that a total of 293 riot-related cases were taken up for scrutiny by the SIT which had chose to close 199 of them after scrutiny.

According to reports, the violence had claimed around 2,733 live in Delhi. The death sentence of another accused was commuted to life sentence by the high court itself.

The apex court perused the report of the supervisory body appointed by it which has found that out of 241 cases, 186 cases were closed without investigation.

AAP leader Jarnail Singh, fighting for the families affected by the anti-Sikh riots, also urged the Supreme Court to direct the CBI, or an independent investigation agency, to investigate the cases.

That SIT was to examine the necessity of further investigation into them.

These cases were scrutinised by the Supervisory Committee comprising former Supreme Court judges, Justices J M Panchal and K S P Radhakrishnan. It had said that nine cases were still being investigated by the SIT, while two cases are being probed by CBI.
