She had told the court on 16th November, “On October 31, 1984, we were watching the TV coverage of the death of Indira Gandhi. On November 1, 1984 when I stepped out to look for my goat, I saw accused Sajjan Kumar addressing the crowd and was saying ‘hamari ma maar di, Sardaro ko maar do‘ (Sikhs killed our mother, kill them)”. The next morning her son and father were pulled out of the house and thrown off the roof. “My son Kapoor Singh and my father Sardarji Singh were pulled out of the hiding place on the second floor, beaten badly and were thrown down from the roof,” Kaur added.

Sajjan Kumar was also identified by another prosecution witness Sheela Kaur as one who instigated the mob in Sulatnpuri. The case was earlier being heard in the Karkardooma court and was later transferred to the Patiala House Court by the Delhi High Court which also directed to District Judge to video record the proceedings at the cost of the accused.
