After the sting operation video went viral against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler which showed Tytler detailing his role in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Victims of 1984 Sikh massacre are going to protest outside the residence of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. They are demanding that Tytler should be arrested and he should be expelled from the allies of Congress. The victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots on Monday urged the Centre to set up a special court to settle their cases and also requested to arrest Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar.

“We urge the Centre to provide us with a special court. Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler are the culprits and the whole country is aware of it. They themselves have accepted their crime. We want the government to first arrest them and then further lead the investigation,” Anti-Sikh Riots Victim Society president Atma Singh Lubna told ANI.

After the video of a sting operation against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, almost all the sikh organizations have been demanding the arrest of Jagdish Tytler. In video clips Tytler accepting his role in the riots, and demanded that he be “arrested and prosecuted, before he left the country.”

According to a report by The Indian Express, an unidentified person had left a pendrive with the video files at Singh’s doorstep. Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal called for Tytler’s immediate arrest and registration of a fresh case to fix Congress leader Rajiv Gandhi’s “direct role” in the riot killings. According to IANS, Badal was referring to an alleged video of Tytler that went viral on Monday, wherein the controversial Congress leader made sensational disclosures regarding the killing of the Sikhs in Delhi and elsewhere.

Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal too demanded that Tytler be arrested. “Manjit Singh has five video clippings of a sting operation against Tytler, wherein he admits to killing 100 Sikhs and other offences. The question being asked is their relevance and admissibility and whether the CBI can act on the basis of these videos,” said Phoolka, who has been fighting cases on behalf of the survivors of the anti-Sikh riots in Delhi and elsewhere in the wake of that assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
