The Delhi court was told on Saturday that a chargesheet against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case citing sufficient evidence to proceed against him was prepared but was not brought before a judge to seek his prosecution.

“The chargesheet was prepared in the case FIR number 67/87 in police station Nangloi, naming Sajjan Kumar as accused on April 8, 1992 but it was dumped in the police file and never brought before the court,” special public prosecutor B .S. Joon told the court.

The FIR was clubbed with another riots case in which the trial was going on, he said. The special prosecutor also said there was sufficient evidence to proceed against the former outer Delhi MP but no action was taken stating his arrest may create law and order problem.
