1984 riots: Delhi court issues production warrant against Sajjan Kumar

New Delhi, January 22: A Delhi court on Tuesday issued a production warrant for January 28 against former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 riots case.

District Judge Poonam A Bamba issued the warrant against Kumar after Tihar Jail authorities, where he is lodged after conviction in another case related to the riots, could not produce him on Tuesday.

In the case before the trial court, three people– Kumar, Brahmanand Gupta and Ved Prakash–are facing trial on charges of murder and rioting pertaining to the killing of Surjit Singh in Sultanpuri.

The riots broke out after the assassination of former prime minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984.
