Two witnesses ready to depose against senior Congress leader Kamal Nath’s alleged role in 1984 Sikh genocide

Senior Congress leader and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath is accused of leading a mob during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots following assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee president and Shiromani Akali Dal’s Delhi MLA, Manjinder Singh Sirsa has today announced that two witnesses are ready to testify against Congress’ Kamal Nath’s alleged role in 1984 Sikh genocide. He added that they are willing to depose before the SIT whenever they are called to record their statements.

He further urged the Congress President to seek the immediate resignation of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and oust him from his post so that the Sikhs get justice.

Sirsa in his Tweet mentions that SIT has re-opened the case (601/84) against Congress Kamal Nath’s alleged involvement in the 1984 Sikh massacre and will consider fresh evidence against him.

MS Sirsa had in June 2019 released a press note, hailing the Home Ministry and asserting that the reinvestigation would mean Kamal Nath, Congress leader and Madhya Pradesh CM will now be brought to book.

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”.

He had said then that the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) had approached the SIT for an FIR against Kamal Nath but due to technical reasons, it was not lodged. He had also claimed that senior journalist Sanjay Suri and retired DSGMC employee Mukhtiar Singh could be witnesses in the case.

The Home Ministry had given a nod on April 9, 2019, to the SIT constituted, to investigate afresh a case against Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Kamal Nath for his alleged involvement in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

The order had said 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 charge-sheeted 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. Sirsa had alleged that Kamal Nath’s name was deliberately not mentioned in the FIR registered on November 1, 1984, for the killing of two Sikhs at Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib. The representation had specifically asked the Home Ministry to direct the SIT to inquire into the role of Kamal Nath.
