Sajjan Kumar gets anticipatory bail in 1984 riot cases

The Delhi High Court on Friday granted anticipatory bail to Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in two cases connected to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Justice AK Pathak granted anticipatory bail to Sajjan Kumar and six others on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 each.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a chargesheet against Sajjan Kumar and others in two cases for allegedly instigating mobs after the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi Oct 31, 1984. Over 3,000 Sikhs across Delhi were killed in the communal frenzy in the days following the assassination.
