Trouble for 👉Kamal Nath as Home Ministry Wants 1984 Riots Case Reopened

  |   India News

A case naming Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Congress's Kamal Nath, during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi, may soon be reopened, as a green signal came today from the Home Ministry headed by Amit Shah.

The ministry's decision came days after the arrest of Kamal Nath's nephew Ratul Puri in connection with the AgustaWestland case. Last month, senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram were also arrested by the Central Bureau Of Investigation.

Kamal Nath has always denied having a role in the riots. The matter came up when he was named as the state's Chief Minister by the Congress and protests were held in Madhya Pradesh and Punjab on the day he took the oath.

Kamal Nath, along with the party's Delhi leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar, were accused of instigating crowds in 1984 after then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was shot dead by her own bodyguards.

Witnesses had alleged that Kamal Nath had led a mob outside central Delhi's Rakabganj gurdwara and two Sikhs were killed in his presence. But Kamal Nath was given the benefit of doubt by the Nanavati Commission, which investigated the matter.
