Convictions in 1984 case have paved way for bringing Tytler, Sajjan to book: Harsimrat Badal

Harsimrat BadalChandigarh, November 15, 2018 (Yes Punjab News)

Union food processing industries minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal today said the conviction of two accused responsible for butchering two Sikhs in the 1984 anti-Sikh massacres on the basis of the SIT investigation ordered by the NDA government had paved the way for similar convictions against Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar and a final closure to the Congress sponsored barbarity against the Sikh community.


Welcoming the conviction of the two persons who killed two young Sikhs in Mahipal village in South Delhi in 1984 in the aftermath of the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Mrs Badal said this was a direct result of the affirmative action taken by the NDA government to bring the guilty to book. “These convictions are a ray of hope for hundreds of Sikhs families who are still awaiting closure 34 years after Congress leaders led mobs which destroyed their homes and businesses besides butchering them in their homes and on the roads of Delhi”.


Mrs Badal said the convictions also proved that the guilty were being given shelter by repeated Congress governments which worked to obliterate evidence of the mass murders. She said the guilty however started feeling the heat after the formation of the NDA government in 2014. “First the NDA government formed the SIT which started taking all eye witness accounts into consideration and collating evidence against the guilty. The NDA government simultaneously created confidence in witnesses to depose fearlessly in the cases and finally day to day hearings were held which has led to today’s convictions”.


Stating that the convictions would now pave the way for the sentencing of Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar also, Mrs Badal said Tytler had already boasted that he had killed 100 Sikhs during the 1984 massacres. She said once Tytler and Sajjan came in the grip of the law the wider Congress conspiracy in the cases would also be unearthed and the culprits who masterminded these massacres would also be brought to book.


Appealing to the witnesses to come forward in this and all other cases involving mass murder of Sikhs, Mrs Badal said the Sikh community had to wait for nine years for registration of FIR in the 1984 cases. She said even this happened after the formation of eleven Commissions. “The Delhi Police was used as a tool by Congress governments and even out of the only 587 FIRs registered in this regard despite thousands being killed and injured, 241 were closed suo moto. The rest were also not investigated by the Delhi Police and CBI under Congress rule”.


Mrs Badal said she had always been in the forefront to fight for exemplary punishment for the butchers of 1984. She said right from raising the issue during her maiden speech in parliament, she had taken up all issues concerning the cause of justice as well as humanitarian help to the affected families with the NDA government. She said it was a matter of record that the NDA government had extended Rs five lakh compensation to affected families. She said the SAD would continue to help affected families to get justice so that all FIRs could be taken to their logical conclusions.
