The senior lawyer of the Supreme Court of India H S Phoolka failed to bring justice for the 1984 anti-Sikh riots as he is fighting the cases since 1984. He has forgotten that justice delayed is justice denied.
Why Phoolka took so many years and the cases have been lingering on in the courts despite having the sufficient evidence, proof and eyewitnesses against Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar.
Phoolka took up the cases of riot affected families to gain fame in his career. He joined hands with the Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar so that’s why he is delaying the cases deliberately.
He had joined Aam Aadmi Party and the party had promised to put the culprits of the Sikh carnage behind the bars. However, nothing has been done so far in this regard.
Even it is evident that the AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal is hand in glove with Jagdish Tytler. A picture of Kejriwal holding hand of Tytler revealed the relationship of the duo.
At that time, Phoolka was a silent spectator the event and didn’t speak against his boss. Phoolka has backstabbed the entire Sikh community by duping them. The carnage happened in 1984 and after 32 years, the culprits are roaming free in the country.
Let’s have a look at Justice (Retd) R S Sodhi who filed a PIL in the 1991 Pilibhit fake counter and the court sentenced the life term to the 47 policemen. The incident took place on July 12, 1991, when the Uttar Pradesh police stopped a luxury bus in which a group of Sikh pilgrims were travelling.
The bus was stopped near Kachla Bridge in Badaun district where the police reportedly offloaded 10 pilgrims. They were made to board a mini bus. Later, the pilgrims were divided into three groups — two of four each and one of the remaining two. Separate police teams then took them to the jurisdiction of different police stations where they were killed in cold blood.
The lure of awards for killing so-called dreaded terrorists was reportedly the motive behind the killings. Some of the Sikh youth had terror-related cases pending against them which the police had come to know.
Supreme Court advocate and former Justice RS Sodhi had filed a PIL in the apex court seeking a CBI probe, which was ordered. If Sodhi’s single PIL could have affected the case then why Phoolka didn’t put hard efforts to bring the justice for the Sikh riot affected families.
