More than six months after the Justice Dhingra Committee, probing 186 cases of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, submitted its report to the Supreme Court, senior BJP leader and "intervenor" RP Singh has written to Home Minister Amit Shah regarding action taken by the Central Government.

Singh wrote that the Centre must take action, as promised, without any further delay and called the letter a "reminder". He urged to form a new SIT to ascertain 'invisible hand' behind the "organised massacre".

According to the BJP national secretary, the report submitted by the Justice Dhingra Committee "clearly and unarguably puts forward a case in favour of the petitioners, displaying explicitly how various functionaries of the state, namely, the judiciary, the police and the state, were working hand-in-glove not only to aid such a gruesome hate crime against a minority community but also successfully managed to shirk off the accountability for the same by giving clearance to the accused."

"As the report makes it abundantly clear, it is reiterated that the violence, riots as well as the clearance to the persons involvedhellip;were indeed orchestrated and cleared by an invisible hand from the very top of the government in power during that time. It is submitted that instead of holding those responsible for the violence to account, many police officials and other persons involved have been promoted over the last 30 years," Singh added.
