Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to re-open all the cases related to 1984 genocide and be investigated by the SIT set up by Centre on February 12, last year.
Addressing the media at Chandigarh, AAP leader Jarnail Singh asked Modi to reinvestigate the cases in next 3 months or let AAP government do it. “AAP will hold a 1-day hunger strike on Thursday at Mohali to support the victims of 1984,” said Jarnail.
Jarnail Singh said that victims have failed to get justice even after 32 years of 1984 genocide and the culprits are roaming freely. He said that AAP government in Delhi formed SIT to investigate the cases of 1984 genocide during its 49-day term but just before 2 days of formation of new government in Delhi on February 12, last year, Central government formed its own SIT. The SIT promised to re-open the cases in 6 months but failed to do it even after 2 years of its formation.
Jarnail Singh raised concern over the clean chit given to Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar by Captain Amarinder Singh. He said that it is really unfortunate that Amarinder Singh gave clean chit to Congress leaders just to appease his political bosses.
Jarnail said that close aide of Jagdish Tytler, Abhishek Verma admitted that to prevent Narinder Singh, son of Granthi Surinder Singh, to give statement against Tytler he was sent to Canada through his Atlis Company and given $50,000. Jarnail accused Tytler of murdering Granthi Surinder Singh as well. Jarnail Singh also sought a public apology from Captain Amarinder for giving clean chit to the Tytler in the 1984 case.
