Congress leader Jagdish Tytler questioned by the CBI, on Friday, in connection with a 1984 anti- Sikh riots case in which he was earlier given a clean chit by the agency.

The move came after a special CBI court in July had given the agency a last chance to complete its probe in two months in the case against Tytler.

Tytler appeared before the investigation team, on Thursday, where he answered to the questions put by the investigating officers, sources said.

The court had on 4 December, 2015, directed CBI to further investigate on the case against Tytler, saying the statement of arms dealer, Abhishek Verma had revealed an active role played by the Congress leader in extending “helping hand” to a witness against him.

The case pertains to the riots at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three people were killed on 1 November, 1984, a day after the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Tytler has denied any role in the riots.
