Supreme Court acquits nine convicted in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday acquitted nine persons convicted in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, giving them benefit of doubt for lack of evidence. Those acquitted were convicted for fuelling riots in East Delhi’s Trilok Puri area.

In November last year, the Delhi High Court had upheld its verdict in the case following which the convicted persons appealed in the Supreme Court.

“There was no evidence against these people and even eyewitnesses did not identify them directly,” the apex court said.
