CBI Files 2 Cases Arising from 1984 Pogroms

The CBI has registered two cases against "unknown persons," regarding incidents of murder and arson, among other crimes, during the November 1984 pogroms of Sikhs in India:
The Ministry of Home Affairs had referred 10 cases registered by the Delhi Police to the CBI for examination out of which the agency firmed up investigations in two cases registered at Mangolpuri and Sultanpuri police stations. All these cases had been closed by the police saying the accused were “untraced”.
The Delhi police claim to have registered 636 cases regarding the 1984 pogroms of Sikhs, and to have secured convictions in 37 cases. This low conviction rate is another indication of impunity for the perpetrators of the 1984 massacre of Sikhs.

ENSAAF's report Twenty Years of Impunity: The November 1984 Pogroms of Sikhs in India reveals the systematic and organized manner in which state institutions, such as the Delhi Police and Congress (I) officials, perpetrated mass murder in November 1984 and later justified the violence in inquiry proceedings. The report also demonstrates that police officers not only passively observed the violence, but also actively participated in the attacks and made promises of impunity to assailants, and that at all times, the police and their superiors had sufficient force and knowledge to effectively counter the violence.
