Seeking justice for the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots, leaders of various political parties on Wednesday met President Pranab Mukherjee and sought his intervention in directing the government to order a Supreme Court-monitored SIT probe into the violence.
Top leaders of BJP and Shiromani Akali Dal, alongwith those of Shiv Sena, Samajwadi Party, TDP, JMM, INLD, BJD and JD-U handed over a memorandum to President Mukherjee, asking him to direct the Central government for acceptance of their demands in addressing the grievances of the Sikh community.
The leaders including L K Advani and Sushma Swaraj, who came together at the initiative of Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, demanded an independent and impartial probe through a Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the 1984 ‘sikh genocide’.
They also demanded that the investigation be monitored by the Supreme Court and that the role of police officers in the riots be also probed, as to how they did not register FIRs and did not prosecute the guilty properly that led to their acquittal.
