A sessions court in Delhi on Wednesday granted anticipatory bail to senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, ANI reported. The Dwarka Court granted him the relief on the condition that he will not leave the country without permission. Kumar was also asked to pay a personal bond and surety of Rs 1 lakh each.
However, advocate HS Phoolka, who is representing the complainant in the case, said he would oppose the bail granted to the Congress politician. Kumar is accused of instigating a mob to kill two Sikhs – Sohan Singh and his son Avtar Singh – in Delhi’s Janakpuri area. The case against him was recently opened by the Special Investigation Team probing the riots, IANS reported.
