NEW DELHI: The Nanavati Report on 1984 anti-sikh riots says it has credible evidence against Union Minister for NRI Affairs Jagdish Tytler among others in the 1984 riots.
The Action Taken Report (ATR) of the govt, however, says that action cannot be taken against Tytler on the basis of probability.
The Panel also says that there were seven FIRs filed against MP Sajjan Kumar
The panel has also held Congress MP Dharam Das Shastri directly responsible for the riots. It has also indicted the then Commissioner of Police, S C Tandon and has held him directly responsible. The govt has agreed to take action against him.
The report also says that the Lieutenant Governor T G Gavai too cannot escape responsiblity for the riots.
The commission was set up in 1999 by the previous National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, the ninth such panel to probe the 1984 riots, even as victims and their families still wait for justice and accountability.
The panel cross-examined close to 200 witnesses and received at least 10,000 affidavits in the past four years before submitting its report in February.
