The Home Ministry has given the nod to reinvestigate old cases related to the 1984 Sikh Genocide case. MS Sirsa, the chief of Shiromani Akali Dal released a press note today hailing the Home Ministry and asserting that this reinvestigation would mean Kamal Nath, Congress leader and Madhya Pradesh CM will now be brought to book.
MS Sirsa, Shiromani Akali Dal: Now with re-investigation of the case, Kamal Nath will surely go to jail like Sajjan Kumar who too was enjoying Z+ security due to Gandhi family. His involvement in 1984 riots will be proved in the court after completion of fresh inquiry against him https://t.co/jnW6zfxlUC

Sirsa said that this order means that Kamal Nath would surely go to jail like Sajjan Kumar who was enjoying Z+ due to the Gandhi family. He said, “his involvement in 1984 riots will be proved in the court after completion of fresh enquiry against him”.
The order that Sirsa was referring to is dated April 9th 2019. The order says that the SIT should reinvestigate serious criminal cases which were filed in the National Capital Territory of Delhi in connection with the 1984 riots case and have since been closed. For this purpose, the SIT shall examine the records afresh.
The order also says that the order has been passed in consideration of the representation made on 24th December 2018 received from the General Secretary, Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee. The order says that the SIT may investigate even cases where the accused have been discharged if any fresh information or evidence comes to light.
The representation that the order refers to was made by MS Sirsa. The representation spoke about the attack on Rakab Ganj Gurudwara in which Kamal Nath is said to have led the mob.
In his representation, Sirsa had said that there was clear evidence that Kamal Nath was present at the Rakab Ganj Gurudwara inciting the mob in 1984 but unfortunately the police had failed to investigate the case properly. Sirsa had said that the five people who were discharged for the crime cannot be tried in the court of law, but the real culprit was never chargesheeted and thus, it is the duty of the police and the SIT to proceed against these culprits and bring them to book.
He had said that Kamal Nath was an active participant in the mob and should be investigated.
The representation had specifically asked the Home Ministry to direct the SIT to inquire into the role of Kamal Nath.
When OpIndia reached out to MS Sirsa, he said that the order has been passed in reference to his representation and thus, it is an order to investigate Kamal Nath as well.
The language of the order certainly does seem to mean that Kamal Nath can now be reinvestigated for his alleged role in the attack of Rakbar Gang Gurudwara.
While the order was passed on 9th April, Sirsa said that he has acquired this order only now and hence, it is being reported now.
