A city court on Tuesday will take up arguments on the closure report filed by the CBI giving clean chit to former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

Earlier submitting the closure report with Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rakesh Pandit, the investigating agency had said that Tytler was not present at the site of the incident.

HS Phoolka, counsel for Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, had vehemently opposed the final report filed by the CBI.

“The CBI has manipulated the investigations to protect Jagdish Tytler from criminal proceedings and even provided him a copy before it could be produced in the court,” Phoolka submitted in the court.

He had also objected the CBI's contention stating that the current case should be transferred to a session court, as the case involves Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.

Responding to victims counsel's objection, the court had fixed April 28 and 29 for arguments on the closure report filed by the CBI.

Till date the court has not accepted the closure report filed by the CBI, and have fixed two days for arguments on the report.
