1984 Sikh riots: Release of accused stayed

New Delhi: Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejendra Khanna has reversed a decision of commuting life sentence of a convict in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case and asked Delhi's Sentence Review Board to give it a relook following protests by a section of Sikh community.
The decision to send the case again to State Review Board was taken following opposition by a section of Sikh community to the decision to commute life sentence of Kishori Lal, 48, a former butcher from Trilokpuri in East Delhi who was accused of stabbing to death several people in the neighbourhood during the riots.
"The State Review Board has been asked by the Lt Governor to review the Lal's case again," sources said on Wednesday.
Lal had been sentenced to death in at least five cases by the lower courts.
