Sajjan Kumar, who is the main accused in the case and is serving a life term in a case relating to the killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar during the incident, was produced before the court by Mandoli jail authorities today.

During the hearing on January 7, a witness in the case had recognised accused Congress leader Sajjan Kumar as the main person who instigated and led the mob during the riots.

The cross-examination of witness Joginder Singh concluded in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case on January 7 while the witness Cham Kaur was cross-examined on her earlier statement by Sajjan Kumar’s lawyer earlier.

On December 17, 2018, the Patiala House Court convicted Kumar in this case and awarded him a life term in the Raj Nagar incident.

Two weeks after Kumar was awarded life sentence by the court in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, the Congress leader surrendered at the Karkardooma District Court.
