CBI Investigation

Because of political pressures, the case was referred to the CBI with instructions to investigate if the two affidavits lodged by Sardar Jasbir Singh and Sardar Surender Singh were true or false.

Acting on this basis, the CBI submitted the 1984 Riots case Report before the Hon. Court of Mr. Sanjeev Jain, u/s 173 for clearance on 29/09/07; and the Hon. Court placed the case for hearing on 4th October, 2007.


The CBI has taken into consideration two affidavits: one made by Sardar Jasbir Singh, son of Sardar Sutta Singh; and the other made by Sardar Surender Singh, son of Sardar Ajit Singh. The CBI has taken both the affidavits into consideration.

After a long time of about twenty-two years after the 1984 Riots, one S.Jasbir Singh gave an affidavit to the last commission of Justice Nanavati, wherein he stated two things about Shri Jagdish Tytler:


(a) That, four days after Mrs. Gandhi’s assassination, on the 3rd November, 1984 at 11.00 p.m. he saw Mr. Jagdish Tytler near the gate of the T.B.Hospital, rebuking a group of people saying that his "instructions had not been faithfully carried out. There had been only a nominal killing in the constituency compared to other places, as I had promised."

This is totally false and fabricated because the whole of Delhi was under curfew, with "shoot at sight" orders, and the whole area of Delhi had been taken under the custody of the Armed Foreces in the late afternoon of 2/11/1984, as per the letter of the Ministry of Home Affairs, taken under RTI Act.


As the whole of Delhi was under curfew not a single person could move anywhere, not even within any street; and the question does not arise of a group of people coming together to listen to a talk by Mr. Jagdish Tytler before the gate of the T.B.Hospital. This is a false and fabricated lie.

(b) S. Jasbir Singh also states that he stayed in the house of S. Sucha Singh, and that he went and told him, in detail, what he saw and heard.

This is also false and fabricated. S. Sucha Singh has also submitted his affidavit to the CBI, in which S.Sucha Singh states that he does not know S.Jasbir Singh, that he had never seen him, nor ever heard his name throughout his life.

His affidavit clearly states that S.Jasbir Singh never stayed in S.Sucha Singh’s house. To confirm his statement, S.Sucha Singh has also issued his statement to the press as well.



Keeping in view the perspectives of S.Sucha Singh’s affidavit and statement combined with the curfew on that day, the statement that S.Jasbir Singh had heard Shri Jagdish Tytler instigating the people collected at the gate of the T.B. Hospital to kill more Sikhs fails. No incident of arson, burning or killings was reported in any area including Outram Lines and Kingsway Camp or Delhi, at this particular time, either before or after the Riots.

The CBI investinged the above affidavit and submitted their report in which the CBI found nothing against Mr. Jagdish Tytler and requested the Hon. Court for the closure of the case u/s 173 IPC and once again gave a "clean chit" to Mr. Jagdish Tytler . The Hon. Court put up the case for hearing on 4/10/2007.



On 4/10/2007. the case was placed before the Hon. Court and as per the Court order of 4/10/2007, it was revealed in the report that the name of Mr. Jagdish Tytler did not come up during investigation by the local police. His name cropped up in the statement and affidavit of S. Jasbir Singh before the Commissioner of Inquiry, alleging that Jagdish Tytler was inciting some people to kill the Sikhs.
