CBI finalises chargesheet against Sajjan Kumar

New Delhi, Jan 10 (PTI) CBI has finalised its chargesheet against senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case and is likely to submit it to the designated court here "soon".

Sources in the agency said the chargesheet was finalised after receiving a nod from Delhi Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna recently to prosecute the Congress leader, an accused in the riots that shook the country 25 years ago after the assasination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her bodyguards.

"We have finalised the chargesheet and it will be filed soon," a senior CBI official said requesting anonymity.

The sanction was required in the case of Sajjan Kumar as he was also charged with section 153-A of IPC (spreading enmity between two communities).

Sources said the sanction was given by Khanna to allow the CBI to launch court proceedings against the Congress leader.
