1984 anti-Sikh riots case: Delhi court orders discussion with Jagdish Tytler on lie detector

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday ordered discussion on lie detector test on Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on March 16 in connection with 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

Abhishek Verma, an arms dealer, who was also issued notice by court on CBI plea agreed to lie detector test, saying he needed security.

During the earlier hearing, Tytler opposed a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) plea seeking a lie detector test on him in a 1984 riots case.

Tytler, who did not appear before the court personally, filed an application through his lawyer stating that the CBI plea was a “gross misuse of law” and it was filed with “malafide intention”.

Arms dealer Abhishek Verma, who was also issued notice by the court on the CBI plea, had appeared before the court and said he stands by his statement given to the probe agency earlier and was ready to join investigation.

The case pertains to death of three Sikhs in the aftermath of the riots that broke out after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Tytler has been given a clean chit by CBI thrice in the case but the probe agency has been directed by the court to further investigate the matter.

Verma has made several statements to CBI against the senior Congress leader that he allegedly pressurised witnesses in the case.http://zeenews.india.com/delhi/1984-anti-sikh-riots-case-delhi-court-orders-discussion-with-jagdish-tytler-on-lie-detector_1980514.html
