New Delhi, February 22 : The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) General Secretary Mr. Manjinder Singh Sirsa today announced that the DSGMC will challenge the decision of the Delhi High Court on bail to Sajjan Kumar in case related to killing to three Sikhs of Janakpuri and Vikaspuri

          Reacting on the decision of the High Court on a plea by Special Investigation Team (SIT) to cancel the anticipatory bail of Sajjan Kumar in this case, Mr. Sirsa said that the decision of the High Court to dismiss the plea of the SIT has come as a shocker for the sikh community which was expecting the cancellation of the anticipatory bail granted by trial court. He said that the accused Sajjan Kumar is highly influential leader who has succeeded in ditching the investigation agencies for the last 34 years as such he should be arrested immediately and his custodial interrogation is required to establish his guilt in the 1984 sikh massacre.

          Mr. Sirsa also said that the DSGMC will also appeal to SIT to challenge the decision of the High Court in SC. He said though we from DSGMC will file a separate petition in the matter, the SIT was duty bound to challenge this decision and he was hopeful that it will do so.

          The DSGMC General Secretary further said that the sikh body was committed to take these cases to their logical conclusion and ensure that guilty including Sajjan Kumar, Jadgish Tytler and others are put behind bars. He said that with fresh evidence surfacing in these cases related to the massacre, he was hopeful that Sikhs will ultimately get justice.

          It is worth mentioning here that the case in which today’s decision has come pertains to killing of two Sikhs  Sohan Singh and his son in law  Avtar Singh in Janakpuri area  Gurcharan Singh of Vikaspuri were burnt alive.
