Delhi cops against Sikhs in 1984: Cobrapost

A sting operation carried out by a news portal on Tuesday claimed that the government had failed to take action to stop the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and senior police officers “colluded” with the then government to teach Sikhs a “lesson.”
In an undercover investigation, Cobrapost interviewed eight officers of Delhi police, some of them admitting to their failure as a force, while others confessing that the top brass of the police force colluded with the then Congress government to teach Sikhs 'a lesson'.
The policemen interviewed include the then Kalyanpuri station house officer (SHO) Shoorveer Singh Tyagi; Rohtas Singh (SHO Delhi Cantonment); SN Bhaskar (SHO Krishna Nagar); OP Yadav (SHO Srinivaspuri); and Jaipal Singh (SHO Mehrauli).
