Nanavati report to be tabled during Budget Session
Amid wide speculation about its contents, Union Law Minister HR Bhardwaj on Sunday said the Nanavati Commission report on the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 would be tabled during the coming Budget Session of Parliament.
He was replying to questions posed by journalists while on a visit to Mahakaleshwar Mutt, about 45 km from Yamuna Nagar, for a Basant Panchmi function.
The Sikh community and Opposition parties have been demanding that the report be "made public" ever since Justice GT Nanavati, a retired Supreme Court judge, submitted the two-volume, 185-page report to Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil in New Delhi on Wednesday.
An estimated 3,000 people were killed in New Delhi in the anti-Sikh riots that followed Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination on October 31, 1984.
The Commission of Inquiry's report contains findings on whether any political party had organised the riots.
