New Delhi: Alleged of instigating a mob in Delhi cantonment area during 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Congress leader Sajjan Kumar will face the final arguments in the case on March 16. District Judge J R Aryan has asked CBI to submit a synopsis of its written arguments by March 5.

The veteran leader Sajjan Kumar is facing prosecution in three cases in which he has been accused of inciting a mob against the Sikh community in 1984.  He is facing trial along with Balwan Khokkar, Kishan Khokkar, Mahender Yadav, Girdhari Lal and Captain Bhagmal on the charge of inciting mob against the Sikh community.

The case against Kumar was registered in 2005 on a recommendation by Justice G T Nanavati Commission. CBI had filed two charge sheets against him and others in January last year.
The trial court had in May, 2010, framed charges against Kumar and five others under Sections 302 (murder), 395 (dacoity), 427 (mischief to cause damage to property), 153A (promoting enmity between different communities) and other provisions of IPC.

Six Sikhs were allegedly killed in Delhi Cantonment area during the riots that had broken out after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

The high court had earlier asked the trial court to expeditiously dispose of the case.
