According to the police complaint filed on Friday by Sikh leader and Rajouri Garden MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the Congress workers present inside and outside the court where two were convicted for the 1984 anti-Sikh pogrom hurled invectives at the aggrieved community
New Delhi: Sikh leader and Rajouri Garden MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa lodged a criminal complaint with Delhi police on Friday, alleging that Congress workers had called for a repeat of 1984 massacre on Thursday at the Patiala House court. The two sides were present in the court that was deciding the sentence of two persons convicted for anti-Sikh pogrom that followed the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
A clash had ensued between supporters of the two convicts and members of the Sikh community, including Sirsa, who were present during the hearing at the courthouse. MyNation had published the first images of the clash on Thursday.
Meanwhile, in his complaint, Sirsa has alleged that Congress workers present inside and outside the courthouse led a whispering campaign, saying: "In sardaron ko 1984 ke riots ki yaad dilani hai".
Later, as the tempers soared following the clashes, Sirsa alleged that the Congress workers hurled abuses at Sikhs, shouting, "S****n sardaron, 1984 bhool gaye ho? Inhen phir se yaad dilani hogi." (Sikhs you have forgotten the 1984 riots, you will have to be reminded of it)
The Congress workers allegedly shouted, "Is s****e Sirsa ko aaj zinda nahi chhodna; hum aaj dikha denge ki Congress worker mein kitna dum hai (Sirsa shouldn’t be left alive today; we need to show how powerful Congress workers are),” according to the MLA's complaint.
