Anti-Sikh Riots: Modi Govt Seeks Permission to Disband SIT
According to ASG Pinky Anand, the Centre has asked the court’s permission to disband the SIT.
The central government has sought permission from the Supreme Court to disband the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was probing 186 cases of the 1984 anti-Sikh Riots, reported news agency IANS.
Acting upon the Supreme Court's orders, an SIT was formed last year to investigate the cases. The team has completed its probe in the matter and submitted its report to the court in a sealed cover.
According to Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, the Centre has now asked the court’s permission to disband the SIT, reported Bar&Bench.
On Friday, 29 November, the apex court said that it will consider the report, submitted to it in a sealed cover, by the SIT under Justice (Retired) Shiv Narayan Dhingra, reported news agency ANI.
It also said that after examining the report, the court will take a decision as to whether this report will be shared with the petitioners or will be kept in the sealed cover. The matter is to be heard after two weeks, according to ANI.
