Appeal filed in Delhi High Court by the CBI and revision petitions by kin of victim and Carnage Justice Committee, an association formed by family of riot victims, against acquittal of Kumar and eight other accused by a trial court on December 7, 2002, in a case where one person was killed in Sultanpuri.

Another riot case in Sultanpuri in which six persons were killed. The Congress leader and four others have been named accused. The trial court had in 2010 ordered framing of charges for the offences of rioting, murder, destruction of property and spreading enmity between two communities against all accused.

The HC had reserved a petition filed by Kumar challenging framing of charges for judgment on Monday but deferred it for further hearing on May 15.

“Missing chargesheet” case: The HC has asked Delhi Police commissioner to probe into the allegation by Carnage Justice Committee. The chargesheet pertained to an FIR lodged at the Nangloi police station in 1987 against Kumar.

The committee claims that on April 8, 1992, a chargesheet was prepared and was ready to be filed in the court. “But it was not filed in the court. It was suppressed for 18 years and did not see the light of day,” said HS Phoolka, the lawyer representing the victims. The HC has also asked the committee to examine request for prosecuting policemen allegedly responsible for not filing a chargesheet in the case for almost 20 years.
