New Delhi, [India], Mar 7 (ANI): The cross-examination of witness Cham Kaur was completed on Thursday in connection with the Sultanpuri riots case in a special CBI court. The incident had allegedly happened during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Another witness will be examined on the next date of hearing, March 28.
Convict Sajjan Kumar, former Congress leader, is the main accused in the case and was also produced before the court on Thursday.
On December 17 last year, the Delhi High Court convicted Kumar in the killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar and the torching of a gurdwara in Delhi on November 1, 1984.
Two weeks after Kumar was awarded life sentence by the court in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, the Congress leader surrendered at the Karkardooma District Court. (ANI)
