MHA refers DGMC’s ‘fresh evidence’ against Tytler to SIT on ’84 riots
New Delhi, Feb 10 (IANS) The Union Home Ministry has forwarded the “fresh evidence” against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler submitted by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DGMC) to the SIT headed by Justice S.N. Dhingra that is probing the mayhem.
On Friday, the Ministry in a letter to Justice Dhingra stated that it has received a complaint from the DSGMC regarding fresh evidence along with a CD containing the full video of Tytler’s TV interview to News18 and a report of the Nanawati Commission.
“It has been stated that fresh evidences, new facts and circumstances and new revelations in the case…have surfaced with reference to the involvement of (Congress leaders) Jagdish Tytler, Kamal Nath, H.K.L. Bhagat and Sajjan Kumar in the said interview…,” it said.
The Home Ministry’s action comes after DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK on Monday released the video of a purported sting operation recorded in 2011, showing Tytler in conversation with a few people.
The letter also said that the revelations may contain “material evidence/leads having relations with some of the 186 cases to be further investigated by the SIT constituted by the Supreme Court” in January.
“Hence the SIT is requested to examine the issues raised in the letter and the material provided in the CD while undertaking further investigation of the cases entrusted to it,” it said.
