While dismissing the plea, the court claimed that “There is no merit in the contention… Alleged sufferings in jail can't be grounds to challenge the rejection of mercy plea by President."

1984 Sikh Riots Case: Police Inaction Challenged In SC, Central Government Accepts Justice S.N. Dhingra Committee Report. Regarding the 1984 Sikh riot case, the Central Government today (January 15, 2020) has told the Supreme Court that it has accepted Justice D.N. Dhingra Committee’s Report purportedly pointing out the “connivance” of the Delhi Police in not filing an appeal in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots’ cases. Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court, HS Phoolka on behalf of the victim petitioners said that the Supreme Court had appointed a fresh Special Investigation Team to look into the cases that took place in the 1984 riots which were not properly investigated into by the police. He said, “This SIT was constituted in 2018 headed by Justice SN Dhingra and the report was submitted by the committee. The matter has come up for hearing now. Looking at the report, the finding of the SIT shows that the prosecution, law and order and even the judiciary was paralyzed at the time. The complete judicial system was manipulated by the culprits, which is an eye-opener. Firstly, the police didn’t register FIRs when recommended by the committee, then they did not conduct proper investigation. In very few cases they filed a charge-sheet, though even in these cases they never produced eyewitnesses, where eyewitnesses appeared and named the culprits – the prosecution never asked them to identify the culprits who were present in the court. And all this while the judges hearing the matter, also remained silent spectators and did not ask the victims to identify the accused.” Subscribe to Law Street Journal for more latest updates.
