Anti-Sikh riots case: SC asks CBI to verify Sajjan Kumar’s medical condition over bail request

Published

on

New Delhi, Aug 24. The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed the CBI to verify the medical condition of former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, accused in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, who sought interim bail citing health grounds.

Senior advocate Vikas Singh, representing Kumar, submitted before a bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy that his client should be taken to a private hospital for treatment as his condition had not been determined at a government hospital. The top court directed the CBI to verify Kumar’s medical condition, who is serving life imprisonment in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

The bench sought CBI’s response on Kumar’s plea and asked the investigating agency to file its response within a week, after it has verified medical condition. Singh submitted that his client was earlier treated by a doctor at a private hospital and the same could be followed for his treatment now. The bench said: “We want the state to verify what the medical condition is”.

Senior advocate Dushyant Dave, representing the complainant in the matter, submitted in 2010 Kumar had got anticipatory bail from the high court and he was sent to jail post his conviction. He pointed out that in September 2020, the top court had junked Kumar’s plea seeking interim bail on health grounds.

Dave emphasized that people were slaughtered during the riots and added, “I have serious reservations about private hospitals and these powerful accused”. Singh contended that his client is in a very precarious condition. The bench noted, “This is a precarious condition itself that he is in jail”

After hearing arguments in the matter, the bench issued notice and posted the matter for further hearing on September 6. The Delhi High Court had convicted him and others in the case on December 17, 2018.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
