The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) seeking its response on a plea filed by Congress leader Sajjan Kumar challenging his conviction in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
The court posted the matter for further hearing after six weeks.
On December 17, Kumar was convicted in the killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar and the torching of a gurdwara in Delhi on November 1, 1984.
Apart from Kumar, Mahender Yadav, and Kishan Khokhar, both convicts in the case also surrendered on the same day.
