'Sajjan Kumar And Others Killed My Brother': Eyewitness Tells Delhi Court

The eyewitness, reiterating his stand, repeated the statement during cross-examination.


New Delhi: 

Sajjan Kumar and others killed my brother and took away our jewellery, cash and expensive clothes, said eyewitness Joginder Singh during the cross-examination by Sajjan Kumar's lawyer Anil Sharma in Delhi on Tuesday.

During the cross-examination, the eye witness was shown the map of the Sultanpuri area. He was questioned about the locality in which he was living at the time when the 1984 anti-Sikh riots erupted.

On March 28, while recording his statement before the Patiala House court, Joginder Singh had contended that Sajjan Kumar led and provoked the mob during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Joginder Singh, reiterating his stand, repeated the statement during the cross-examination today.

District Judge Poonam Bamba was hearing the matter relating to Sultanpuri area incident during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

After the cross-examination, Sharma told the court that Singh''s statement that Kumar killed his brother is a new revelation and that he never mentioned anything about his brother''s death in the statement given by him before.

Further cross-examination is slated to be held on April 25.

Joginder Singh, who had lost his brother during the riots, is being represented by advocate Tarannum Cheema, HS Phoolka and DP Singh.

Earlier witness Cham Kaur was also cross-examined by Kumar''s lawyer in November 2018.

Riots took place in 1984 riots targetting Sikhs in Sultanpuri area of Delhi, which, witnesses have claimed, was instigated by Sajjan Kumar.

The former Congress leader is serving a life term in the case relating to the death of five members of a family in Raj Nagar and the torching of a gurdwara in Delhi on November 1, 1984.

On December 17 last year, the Delhi court had convicted Kumar in this case and awarded him a life term.

Two weeks after Kumar was awarded life sentence by the court in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, the Congress leader surrendered at the Karkardooma District Court.
