Sukhbir Singh Badal, president Shiromani Akali Dal and deputy chief minister, Punjab on Tuesday expressed shock and anguish at the acquittal of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in 1984 Sikh carnage case and expressed hope that Supreme Court of India would take cognizance of this blatant denial of justice to the families of 3000 Sikh victims and order reinvestigation as done in the case of Jagdish Tytler.

In a statement issued, Badal said that it was the most unfortunate that a glimmer of hope for justice 29 years after biggest massacre of the century got dashed due to open complicity of Delhi Police, CBI and their mentor Congress Party. He said that it was ironical for biggest democracy of the country that the judgment came on a day when CBI itself admitted in the Apex Court that they get the crucial files vetted by the Congress Ministers especially which Congress leaders were accused.

Badal said that whole Congress leadership was bent upon safeguarding 10 Janpath as any custodial interrogation of Sajjan and Tytler would expose the hand of 10 Janpath in this massacre. He said that both these architects of massacre were being protected just to safeguard the first family interest in this massacre.

He said that Shiromani Akali Dal would not allow Congress Party to put a lid on this biggest ever massacre and would continue to fight till all culprits including Sajjan and Tytler were given exemplary punishment.

Calling upon all political parties to come forward to expose the killer face of Congress Party by supporting the just cause of Sikhs, Badal said that all parties were rising above the caste and community considerations should join hands with Shiromani Akali Dal as denial of justice to the victims of more than 3000 Sikhs killed in the capital of India would raise a question mark on the credibility of democratic and Judicial system of the country.
