India: 1984 Sikh Genocide – CBI Tells Delhi Court Investigations Against Jagdish Tytler To Be Completed In Two Months

DELHI: The CBI has filed a report on the lie-detector tests conducted on businessman Abhishek Verma, an eyewitness of the 1984 Anti-Sikh Genocide before a Delhi Court.

The court was informed that the investigations against former Congress union minister Jagdish Tytler will be completed in two months time. The case now stands adjourned till May 22.

Last year, a Delhi court had asked the CBI to expedite the investigation in cases allegedly involving Tytler and file a progress report. The direction was passed after the probe agency informed the court that it needed more time to conduct a lie detector test on Abhishek Verma.

The case in question pertains to the massacre at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three Sikhs were killed on November 1, 1984.

Abhishek Verma (pictured below) had earlier alleged before the court that the forensic lab was trying to shield Jagdish Tytler, during the polygraph tests carried out earlier on him.

Tytler has refused to undergo the lie detector test whereas Verma had given conditional consent if he was provided round-the-clock security, claiming threat to his life.
