New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday said that the anti-Sikh riots case in which two men have been convicted should have been made a case of massacre and not murder so that it would have moved faster. He also said that BJP is not responsible for the delay in the case. He said,
“The delay in the matter is not the fault of BJP. The case should have been that of a massacre and not a murder case. So the case should be made that of a massacre which will allow it to proceed fast.”
In the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, a Delhi court on November 20 pronounced death penalty to Yashpal Singh and life imprisonment to Naresh Sehrawat for killing two Sikhs during.
