CBI Comes to U.S. for Testimony in 84 Anti-Sikh Riots

India-West, Posted: Jan 03, 2009

A team from Indias Central Bureau of Investigation came to the United States last week to take testimony from two key witnesses who allege that former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler organized three days of violence against Sikhs in New Delhi in 1984, following the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, reports India-West.

The CBI team initially interviewed Giani Surinder Singh in New York, and then questioned Jasbir Singh in San Francisco on Christmas Day. Several Sikhs protested outside the memorial as Singhs testimony was being taken.

Jasbir Singh, who gave the same testimony before the Nanavati Commission in 2004, was last November ordered by the CBI to come to Delhi to present evidence regarding Tytlers involvement in the riots that killed more than 3,000 Sikhs. Singh, a resident of Fremont, Calif., refused, saying he feared for his life.

In a key portion of his testimony, Singh said he saw the easily distinguishable Tytler step out of a car in Outram Lane, New Delhi, to rebuke a group of men for not killing enough Sikhs.
