Rather, Tytler is encouraged and treated like a VIP and senior Congress leaders don?t feel embarrassed sharing the dias with him,? he said.nn?It appears that the sentiments of the Sikhs have no value nor does Tytler have any self-respect as he shamelessly occupies the center-stage of such public functions when the entire nation is waiting for justice to be delivered to Sikhs in the genocide case in which he is an accused,? he added.nn?I implore Rahul Gandhi to ensure that Tytler is expelled (or at least suspended) from the Congress Party primary membership immediately,? Verma said.nnThe Sikhs should get justice now after 34 years of unfortunate massacre,? said Verma while reacting strongly on Tytler?s presence in Congress office.nnRole of TytlernnThe CBI closed all cases against Jagdish Tytler in November 2007 for his alleged criminal conspiracy to engineer riots against Sikhs in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination.nnThe CBI submitted a report to the Delhi court that no evidence or witness was found to corroborate allegations that Tytler led murderous mobs during 1984. It was alleged in court that Tytler ? then an MP ? complained to his supporters about the relatively-“small” number of Sikhs killed in his constituency (Delhi Sadar), which he thought had undermined his position in the Congress Party.nnOn the other hand, Tytler claimed innocence, and maintained that it was a case of mistaken identity. Tytler had not been named in any of the eight earlier inquiry commissions set up to investigate the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.nnOn 10 April 2013, the Delhi court ordered the CBI to reopen the 1984 case against Tytler. The court ordered the bureau to investigate the killing of three people in the riot case, of which he had been cleared.nnAnswers needednnNow question is that who had invited riots accused Tytler and who instructed him to be seated in the front row at an event along with senior Congress leaders as Dikshit took charge.
