New Delhi : The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday failed to file a status report on the progress in Congress leader Jagdish Tytler's investigation in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
The investigating agency was supposed to submit is report in the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate S.P.S. Laler, who is presently monitoring the investigation. The court has asked the Superintendent of Police (CBI) to be present during the next hearing on February 22.
Earlier, a Delhi court ordered fresh probe against Tytler, rejecting the clean chit given to the Congress leader by the CBI.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Laler had refused to accept the CBI's closure report, ordering the agency to further probe Tytler's role in connection with this case as over 3,000 people from the Sikh community was killed during the riots.
The CBI had earlier told the court that Tytler "was not involved" in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case relating to an attack on Gurdwara in Pulbangash.
The agency had sought dismissal of the victim's plea, saying the probe has made it clear that Tytler was not present on November 1, 1984, at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three people were killed during the riots. The CBI had said that Tytler was at Teen Murti Bhawan.
