Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate SPS Laler put up the matter for the next date on October 16 as the counsel for the victims was not present today. Advocate Kamna Vohra told the court that senior advocate H S Phoolka, representing the riot victims, was busy in the Supreme Court and sought another date for advancing arguments.
The riot victims have filed a protest petition against the clean chit given thrice to Tytler by the CBI, claiming there was ample evidence to prosecute him and charging the agency with favouring him.
Complainant Lakhvinder Kaur, whose husband Badal Singh was killed in the riots, in her protest petition has challenged the closure report and sought the court's direction to CBI to investigate the matter further to bring on record available incriminating evidence against the accused.

Seeking to dismiss with heavy cost the protest petition filed by riot victims, CBI had said that during its probe, it has been established that Tytler 'was not involved in the incident of attack which took place at Gurdwara Pulbungash on November 1, 1984'.
The agency had described Tytler as 'innocent' and said it cannot falsely implicate an innocent person merely on the basis of charged sentiments and to satisfy the ego of some elements who are adamant to falsely implicate Jagdish Tytler.
The victims had sought action against Tytler on allegations of influencing witness and money laundering.
