CBI on Saturday filed chargesheet against Congress's Jagdish Tytler in connection with Pul Bangash Gurudwara fire case, in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

CBI on Saturday filed chargesheet against Congress's Jagdish Tytler in connection with Pul Bangash Gurudwara fire case, in 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Last month, Tytler appeared before the CBI court and gave samples of his voice, in connection with the Pul Bangash Gurdwara case.

At thet time he said, "What have I done? If there's evidence against me, then I'm prepared to hang myself...It wasn't related to 1984 riots case for which they wanted my voice (sample), but another case".

Tytler is accused of leading a mob in the 1984 Pul Bangash case in which three Sikhs were killed.

The CBI had given a clean chit to the Congress leader in the case but re-opened the investigation following a December 4, 2015 order.

Over the past few years, the Congress party had distanced itself from Tytler as he faced legal trouble related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots

The case against Tytler was one of the three cases Justice GT Nanavati Commission had ordered to be reopened by the CBI in 2005.

The Nanavati Commission has named Tytler as one of the organisers of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Tytler is accused of leading a mob outside the Gurudwara Pul Bangash in his North Delhi constituency in which three Sikhs were killed.

According to official records, about 2,800 Sikhs were killed across India, including 2,100 in Delhi, during the pogrom that broke out after then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards.
