A pack Of Wolves In Khaki Clothing.
The history gives no account of such precedent on this subject as does the manner in which dreaded, criminal, murderous and ruthless officers of Delhi Police disposed of thousands of dead bodies of innocent Sikh people in an inhuman, wicked and cruel manner. Come on! Let us assume for a while that it was not Delhi Police officers who murdered or got murdered the Sikh people in November “1984”. Well, let us also assume for a while that the Delhi Police is neither aware of the truth about killings of the Sikh people in Delhi nor do they know where the killers came from to do this bloody massacre of the Sikh people.
Nevertheless, the truth is as universally accepted as the existence of Sun God and the facts speak for themselves that over five thousand innocent Sikhs fell dead in a single day, and all the dead bodies were found in the streets of Delhi that include the area around thirty kilometers. Besides, a large number of decomposed or badly burnt or extensively wounded dead bodies were seen lying in lanes, alleyways, squares, parks, trains, railway stations, bus terminals, trucks, streams, canals, markets, streets, stores, factories, taxi stands, petrol pumps, transporters, warehouses, etc.
it was the legal obligation of the Delhi Police to take these dead bodies in their custody, and they did fulfill it. However, Delhi Police ‘neither’ lodged an FIR, ‘nor’ did they made a note of it in their diary, ‘nor’ did they photograph the dead bodies, ‘nor’ did they conduct a post-mortem on the dead bodies, ‘nor’ did they write the post-mortem report, ‘nor’ did they appeal for witnesses to the killings, ‘nor’ did they inform the kin of victims through a pubic notice, ‘nor’ did they hand over the dead bodies to an heir, ‘nor’ did they investigate a murderer for the massacre, ‘nor’ did they file a single murder case to be decided in a court, ‘nor’ did they keep the dead bodies of innocent Sikh people in a mortuary or a funeral parlor, ‘nor’ did they administer the last rites to anyone and ‘no’ funerary rites were administered as per the doctrine of Sikhism, ‘no’ recitation of the sacred Gurbani funeral was done, ‘no’ Gurdwara authorities were informed to witness a cremation and ‘no’ ritual material or wooden sticks were used to burn the dead bodies.
Moreover, when a dreaded terrorist is killed, the police are supposed to perform their funeral rites as per the ritual of the religion of the dead, the last rites of the dead bodies of the Sikh people were performed by the followers of other religions. For instance, the funeral ceremony of the terrorists who attacked the Indian Parliament as well as the Pakistani enemies who died in the Indo-Pak war was performed in a dignified manner according to the respective religion of the dead, the corpses of the Sikhs were cremated with the dead bodies of alcoholics, meat-eaters, crooks, criminals and the like persons and without performing any religious ritual too! This terrible inhuman act has threatened the very fabric of the Indian society and all of the religious traditions and customs of the country. Whereas it is the foremost as well as the most important moral duty of the Delhi Police to comply with all their legal obligations, on the contrary, the senior officers of the Delhi Police crossed all limits of cruelty when they collected or got collected the dead bodies of Sikh people so inhumanly. With a nod and a wink of the Centre – especially, M.M.K. Wali, the then Home Secretary, Government of India, P.G. Gavai, the then Lt. Governor of Delhi, and Subhash Tandon, the then Police Commissioner of Delhi – the senior officers of Delhi Police bribed sweepers, criminals, butchers and slum-dwellers with alcohol and a lot of money to drag the dead bodies of Sikh people from different areas of Delhi to dustcarts, street venders’ pushcarts, cycle-rickshaws and auto-rickshaws so cruelly as if “a sweeper drags an animal to his handcart.” Thereafter, they tied or wrapped together the dead bodies collected from different parts of Delhi and put the bundles in small trucks and tempos to take these to the forests on the outskirts of Delhi and Aravalli hills surrounding Delhi to set the lots on fire with the help of petrol, diesel or other chemicals during the hour of darkness in night as a top-secret act! It marks the cold, dark and scary nights of November “1984”. It was a time when a commoner of Delhi was so terrified and the Sikh people were in hiding while many of them were injured. Television was the only electronic media and it was Government-controlled at that time.
In the hard times of this tragedy, Delhi Police showed a stunning contempt of the Gurugranth Sahib and hundreds of Gurdwaras. For instance, Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Gamdi near Bhajanpura, situated in trans-yamuna area of Delhi was totally devastated and the Gurugranth Sahib and other religious books were burnt and rereduced to ashes. Thereafter, the Gurudwara was occupied by the police to build a police station on the land. This police station remained in existence here for 8 years that is till 1992, and all this happened in Delhi, the capital of the country, to bring about the disgarce of a brave community. We must not forget the fact that “ten hungry hounds can kill even a lion or tiger collecively!”
The Centre government has conspired against the Sikh in a planned manner and told the Sikh people again and again that investigating committees are doing their job well and they will definitely get justice. This job of investigating committees lasted for 26 years and total 18 investigating committees were set up one by one in this long period. Unfortunately, it proved to be merely deception, a criminal conspiracy. Therefore, Your Honor, I request you to take this petition of mine as a Writ Petition and let the legal proceedings be begun. I must request (as in November “1984”) that:
an immediate legal action be taken against all the then senior officers – ACP, DCP, Joint Commissioner and Commissioner of Police including the SHOs and other officers posted in all police stations of Delhi in murder, roit, arson, rape, throwing away dead bodies, destruction of evidence, spoiling religious places, provoking a mob of criminals and the like serious cases. Besides, on the basis of the given facts, let a strict action be taken against the topmost police officers and felonious political leaders who made the police force do this heinous crime; and
(B) an order be issued for letting a big and special team of senior officers with an honest background from North-east and Keral or South India be set up by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the leadership and guidance of the present honest Commissioner of Police so that the legal proceedings be done in time-bound manner.
Gurcharan Singh Babbar says, “Whenever I pass by the Supreme Court of India, I hang my head in shame for these unanswered queries in mind: Is it the biggest temple of justice for us or an refuge for the agents of the Centre government, murderers of the innocent and police officers with criminal background? Or is it a meeting-place for judges, the eyewitness to mass murder of the innocent, who did not perform their moral and legal duty due to which the whole community Sikh has been deprived of justice for long?
Therefore I would like to ask:
(i) Are the Supreme Court judges ignorant of the fact that Delhi has witness killing of over 5000 innocent persons?
(ii) Is the Supreme Court ignorant of the fact that about 10,000 murderers of the innocent of Delhi reside in the vicinity of the Court?
(iii) Is the Supreme Court ignorant of the fact that it remained closed continuously for four days in November 1984 because the roads had been blocked by the killers?
(iv) Is the Supreme Court ignorant of the fact that the Supreme Court judges remained closed indoors continuously for four days while the Court itself was in possession of the killers, so no applicant or advocate or judge could enter the Court in this period? And
(v) Is the Supreme Court ignorant of the fact that the murderers of the innocent are enjoying themselves without restraint while the suffering families are wandering about for justice? However, the Hon’ble Court has taken Suo-motto action after reading news published in dailies many a time, it kept mum on the issue of widows!
The Supreme Court judges knows everything, but due to being corrupt, schismatic, cowardice, impotent and an agent in the Centre government, they use to keep mum as the former Supreme Court judge Ranganath Mishra.
Evidence was overwhelming that the Delhi Police connived in the Sikh massacre. TUSHA MITTAL, a senior journalist, tracks how it was systematically compromised over 25 years.
In the picture — Protectors turn bystanders, policemen watched as the mobs plundered and killed the Sikhs in 1984.
THIS IS what the police did during the 1984 Sikh massacre: they watched. They let the rampaging mobs storm the Sikhs’ houses. And some even took part. They removed the Sikh police officers who would have acted against the killers. They disarmed ordinary Sikhs so they couldn’t protect themselves, and gave them no protection. They wired messages about Sikhs charging ahead with kirpans, but forgot to mention the mobs assaulting the Sikhs.
This is what the police did soon after the 1984 Sikh massacre: concealed the number of those killed despite dead bodies all around. Closed 300 of the 700 cases claiming the culprits were “untraceable”. Directed subordinates to not register cases. Merged hundreds of cases into a single FIR. Refused to register FIRs against police officers and government officials. Registered — shockingly — FIRs against Sikhs. Threatened eyewitnesses and forced them to sign affidavits favoring the police. Reduced major offences to minor ones, manipulated evidence, and destroyed paper trails. In some areas, the police said that the curfew that followed the mass killings only applied to the Sikhs.
There’s worse. Pretending to be victims, many officers wrote false affidavits exonerating various Congress leaders who were seen inciting the killer mobs.
Since the pogrom, many investigative commissions have come and gone, each scrutinising the role of the police. First, in 1984, the commission led by IPS officer Ved Marwah. Then, in 1987, the Committee led by former IAS officer Kusum Lata Mittal. In 1990, the Jain-Agarwal Committee led by retired judge JD Jain and retired IPS officer DK Agarwal. And, in 2000, the Nanavati Commission of retired Supreme Court judge GT Nanavati. Each received thousands of affidavits meticulously detailing how the police aided the Sikh massacre……SUBHASH TANDON WAS BEHIND ALL THIS.
There have been two commissions of enquiry and eight committees to probe the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. In these 30 years, meek efforts of the government to bring the guilty to book have just meandered through a maze of paper work and such toothless enquiries or commissions.
The inaction on the reports of the commissions and the committees stems from futility of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1952. It does not give the commissions of inquiry any powers to prescribe punishment (though they can recommend it). The government can ignore their findings and that is what has happened in this case for 28 years. The commissions are like “a dose of homeopathic medicine when immediate surgery was needed”, says a senior police man who has served in Delhi.
Such has been the attitude that for the first two years, no account of the dead was carried out. The Ranganath Mishra commission – the first one set up to probe the riots — was given names, addresses and complete details of 3,870 people killed in Delhi. But police said 1,419 were killed. Cases of only these people were registered. The Delhi government filed a list of 2,300 people killed. A separate committee later established that 2,773 people died in Delhi alone.
2005, the GT Nanavati Commission indicted Jagdish Tytler, he resigned from his post as Minister of State for Overseas Indian Affairs. The government asked CBI to re-investigate the cases.
The Nanavati Commission found that there was a colossal failure in maintenance of law and order in Delhi during the riots. It expressed dissatisfaction with the then Lt. Governor P.G. Gavai and the then Police Commissioner, SC Tandon. The latter said the commission, did not take strict action against the defaulting police officers nor did he give them directions to be strict with the marauding mobs.
The Nanavati Commission also touched upon the delay in deploying the Army in the Capital on October 31 itself. So who delayed the deployment? The Lt Governor of Delhi has the powers to deploy the Army in such circumstances, without waiting for the political clearance. The then LG, PG Gavai claimed he gave the go-ahead to the Police Commissioner SC Tandon on the morning of November 1. The riots started the same day. The Delhi Police is directly under the Central government.
Surinder Singh — a prime-witness against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, who allegedly led a killer mob — approached the Commissioner of Police Subhash Tandon for help after the killings. “This,” Singh told, “is what the police officer Tandon said to me: Jo log mar gaye, hamne unki madad ki. Aap mar jaate, ham aapki bhi madad karte (We helped those who died. Had you died, we would have helped you too). ”RASCAL TANDON ACTIVELY PARTICIPATED IN THIS CARNAGE….
.A quarter century later, neither justice nor accountability has come. In all, the various commissions and committees indicted 147 police officers for their role in the Sikh killings. Not one officer has been prosecuted. Some 42 of these officers had retired or died by 2005. The Delhi Government has taken no action against the remaining officers.
Several officers, whose dismissal was recommended for their role in the killings and in destroying evidence, were promoted. Several others were allowed to retire gracefully. The Union Home Ministry exonerated five officers. Meanwhile, systematic machinery has been in place to ensure that those accused of killing the Sikhs remain scot-free.
IT WAS on Shoorveer Singh Tyagi’s watch that 500 Sikhs were brutally killed in the east Delhi slum of Trilokpuri. He was the SHO of the local police station. This was the Capital’s heaviest toll in a single location. The Kusum Lata Mittal probe noted Tyagi’s “criminal misconduct” during the killings and described him as a “living shame for any police organization”.
“[Tyagi’s] attempts, to a great extent successful, in obtaining affidavits in his favour by browbeating the witnesses indicate that it is highly unlikely that any witness would have the courage of coming and giving evidence against him,” Mittal wrote in her report. Her shocking finding — Tyagi found an honorable discharge from the court only because the police failed to take the sanction from the Union Home Ministry to file a charge sheet against him, which was mandatory because he was a government employee. No action was ever taken against him. In 2005, he was promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP)……
Sewa Dass, DCP (East), was Tyagi’s immediate boss.:The conduct of Sewa Dass is a slur on the name of any police force. He should not be trusted with or assigned any job of responsibility. Sewa Dass removed Sikh officers from duty who were inclined to take proper measures to deal with the rioters. The SHOs under his jurisdiction systematically disarmed the Sikhs [and] as a result they couldn’t protect themselves. At the same time no steps were taken to provide police protection to them. Sewa Dass was getting directions from POLICE COMMISSIONER SUBHASH TANDON DIRECTLY.
……….NEHRUVIANS CRIMINALISED THE INTERNAL SECURITY APPARATUS… IN THE MEAN PROCESS….WHO IS THAT BASTARD ON EARTH , WHO CAN SAY THAT NEHRUVIANS ARE SECULAR…????????…
