Formation of new SIT for anti-Sikh riot cases 'historic':

Press Trust of India  |  Ludhiana 

Supreme advocate and legislator H S Phoolka has termed the forming of a fresh Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe anti-riot cases as "historic".

His remark came after the apex set up a three- member SIT headed by former High Justice S N Dhingra to supervise further probe into the cases.

"It is a very big, bold and historic step taken for the first time in 33 years," he told reporters here.

Phoolka said he was optimistic that justice, which eluded victims for long, would now be delivered.

He has been fighting cases for anti-riot victims.
