39 Yrs After Anti-Sikh Riots, CBI Records Tytler’s Voice Sample for Probe

New Delhi: The CBI on Tuesday recorded Congress leader Jagdish Tytler’s voice sample in connection with a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in the Delhi’s Pul Bangash area.

Tytler arrived at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory for the voice sample recording. According to sources, the CBI has found some fresh evidence in the 39-year-old riots case for which a voice sample of Tytler is being collected.

Three persons were allegedly killed in the riots in Pul Bangash area of Delhi in the anti-Sikh riots that followed the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards in 1984.

The Congress leader is accused of inciting a mob that murdered the victims.

Tytler was given a clean chit by the Central Bureau of Investigation on three occasions, but the court had asked the agency to investigate the matter further.

78-year-old Tytler was also named in a report of the Nanavati Commission which probed the anti-Sikh riots.

The BJP had in 2018 filed a complaint demanding Jagdish Tytler’s arrest after a Sikh organisation released a video, claiming it shows him saying “I killed 100 Sikhs”.
