DSGMC Targets CBI Officers For Slow Pace of Investigations into 1984 Genocide

New Delhi / 11 July 2016   
The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee Manjit Singh G.K. (DSGMC) today criticised the officials of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for slow pace of investigations into 1984 Sikh genocide in which hundreds of innocent Sikhs were done to death in most merciless manner.

G.K. said due to slow pace of investigations by CBI it failed to file complete chargesheet in Sikh genocide case against Congress party leader Jagdish Tytler in Karkardomma court today, which is highly unfortunate. He said that carelessness on the part of CBI will not be accepted at any cost. He raised questions on functioning of CBI while he said that working of SIT was satisfactory.

G.K. said that DSGMC advocates Avtar Singh and Lakhmi Chand opposed the counsels of CBI and proposed to send teams to Canada to bring evidences. As CBI sought more time for filing complete chargesheet taking the plea that interpol is taking time to give evidence in the case, G.K. objected to it and asked why CBI is not investigating role of a company which has sent money through hawala to witness in Canada.

G.K. said that he will take up the matter of slow pace of investigations by CBI before Home Minister of Government of India and demand transfer of CBI officers who are slow in performing their duties. DSGMC president alleged that some officers in CBI are opposed to Sikhs due to which the investigations have suffered.

Referring to reply of a letter written by him to Home Ministry on 10 June 2016 demanding shifting of SIT from Delhi police to other state police, G.K. said the home ministry has replied that talks are on with the police of other states.

DSGMC president who is also present of Shiromani Akali Dal in Delhi said that Home Ministry has said that a senior level officer of ministry is supervising the pace of work of SIT and it is also considering the options of making genocide victims’ families meeting the SIT.
