New Delhi: The Centre has filed in the Apex Court a status report on the investigation conducted by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases. The report was filed before a bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra, which took it on record. The bench fixed the matter for hearing on the 6th of next month.
The Supreme Court had, last month, asked the Centre to file a comprehensive report on the status of the SIT probe on a plea seeking a court-supervised investigation. The court had also asked the Centre to apprise it about the steps taken in the matter within four weeks after the government had said that the SIT’s work is in progress.
The Centre, in its counter affidavit filed earlier, had said there has been considerable progress in the SIT probe. It had said, 218 cases were at various stages of scrutiny and a decision has been taken for re-investigation in respect of 22 cases.
