A Delhi court on Tuesday fixed April 30 for pronouncing its judgement in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, in which Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and five others are accused.

District Judge JR Aryan said he required no clarification from the counsel for CBI and the accused. “Come on April 30 for the judgment,” the judge said right after taking his seat in the court room. The court had earlier fixed the matter for April 16 for any clarification that it might require in the case.

Kumar is facing trial along with five others — Balwan Khokkar, Kishan Khokkar, Mahender Yadav, Girdhari Lal and Captain Bhagmal — for allegedly conspiring and inciting a mob against the Sikh community in Delhi Cantonment area.

The case relates to anti-Sikh riots that had broken out after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

The case against Kumar was registered in 2005 on a recommendation by Justice GT Nanavati Commission.

CBI had filed two chargesheets against him and the other accused in January 2010.
