Sajjan Kumar: Milestone conviction over 1984 Sikh killings

A senior politician from India's Congress party has been jailed for life in the most significant conviction to date over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

 

Sajjan Kumar, who was an MP at the time, was found guilty of inciting crowds to kill Sikhs.

In a scathing verdict, the Delhi high court judges said the accused evaded justice due to "political patronage".

More than 3,000 Sikhs were killed following the assassination of then PM Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards.

They were angry at her decision to send the army into the Golden Temple - Sikhism's holiest shrine - to flush out militants earlier in the year.

For 34 years, high-profile politicians accused of involvement in the anti-Sikh riots had evaded justice - on Monday this changed with Sajjan Kumar's conviction.

However his lawyer told journalists that he would appeal against the verdict in the Supreme Court.
