Tytler’s sting: SAD seeks case against Gandhi family

Statesman News Service | Chandigarh |

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday demanded registration of a case against the Gandhi family for allegedly engineering the massacre of thousands of Sikhs in Delhi and in other parts of the country following release of evidence to this effect in a sting operation conducted on party leader, Jagdish Tytler.

The SAD on Monday held a press conference in New Delhi where the party released five sting videos that allegedly confirm Congress leader Tytler’s role in 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The Akali Dal claimed that Tytler confessed to killing 100 people during the 1984 riots in these videos and had been promised a Rajya Sabha seat or chief ministership of Delhi by the Congress high command for this.

Reacting to this, SAD president said both disclosures proved the Gandhi family’s direct involvement in the 1984 genocide.

“The video evidence against Tytler which has surfaced today was recorded in December, 2011. Tytler was sacked from the Union ministry in 2009. The very fact that he is bragging that he was promised a seat in Parliament or Chiefministership of Delhi proves that he was being offered inducements to stop him from spilling the beans against the Gandhi family,” Badal said.
“Now it is incumbent that the courts of law ask the Gandhi family to explain why it was offering such inducements to a criminal who had the blood of innocent Sikhs on his hands?” he asked.
Badal said video graphic evidence had also emerged which explained why the victims of the 1984 massacres were still not getting justice. “Tytler is seen boasting about manipulating inquiries as well as flaunting his close relations with the judiciary and even admitting that his son’s company had an account in a Swiss bank.

He also flaunts his financial strength by stating that he had given up Rs 150 Crore owed to him by his friends. All this was possible only because of the political shelter being given to him by the Gandhi family”, he added. The SAD president said he should be arrested immediately and tried for the murder of 100 Sikhs in Delhi.

“Simultaneously the courts should probe the role of the Gandhi family which clearly conspired to strike out against the Sikhs. This is even corroborated from former PM Rajiv Gandhi’s statement that when a big tree falls the ground shakes”, he added.
