Judicial procedure was ‘influenced’: Amit Shah on tardy conviction pace

Opinion Poll: Targeting the Congress, BJP chief Amit Shah on December 19 said judicial procedure was ‘influenced’, which led to no convictions for so long in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

The Delhi High Court on December 17 sentenced Congress leader Sajjan Kumar to imprisonment for life, the first conviction of a politician in the 1984 riots in which over 2,700 people were killed.

“The judicial procedure was influenced which led to no convictions in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. It made people furious over the issue even after 34 years of the incident,” Shah said at the Republic Summit here.

He said the NDA government set up another Special Investigation Team (SIT) after coming to power in 2014 and the convictions are taking place as per this body’s findings.
