MHA forwards BJP leader’s letter to SIT

New Delhi, July 25

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has forwarded a letter written by BJP leader RP Singh to the special investigation team (SIT) and the DCP, Anti Riots Cell, regarding the action taken on the Justice Dhingra Committeen report. Calling it a "big step forward", Singh said an "investigation needs to be done on the invisible hand, the one who directed local Congress leaders to carry out the massacre in Delhi".

In February 2015, the Narendra Modi government had ordered formation of an SIT to look into cases related to anti-Sikh riots that broke out after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

In 2018, the Supreme Court constituted the Justice Dhingra Committee to probe the 186 cases during the riots. The committee submitted its report to the Supreme Court in January 2020. Six months down the line, Singh wrote to the MHA regarding action taken by the government against culprits in the case "as promised". — TNS
