Nine sentenced in anti-Sikh riot case

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, DEC. 3. A Delhi court has sentenced nine persons, including four women, to rigorous imprisonment for three years in an anti-Sikh riot case, which occurred in the Bara Hindu Rao police station area of north Delhi in the wake of the assassination of the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, on October 31, 1984.

Police had lodged the case on the recommendation of an Inquiry Commission that found the complaint by Prakash Kaur, whose crockery shop had been looted and later taken possession of by the accused persons, valid. All the nine, Bhagwas Dass, Uday Ram, Bhagwan Dai, Ashi Devi, Omprakash, Kishan, Munni Devi, Kishori and Sheela, were members of a joint family and doing business near Ms. Kaur's shop.

The accused are still in possession of the shop. They have appealed against a civil court order asking them to vacate it.

Convicting the accused, the Additional Sessions Judge, S.N. Dhingra, said: "I consider that the accused persons are liable to be convicted of the offence under Section 379 (theft) read with Section 34 of the IPC for committing theft of the articles lying in the shop." They were also convicted under Section 448 (trespass) read with Section 34 of the IPC for committing trespass into the shop.
