Breaking the locks of the office of Manwinder Singh Giaspura in Moti Nagar on June 12,two unidentified persons stole documents related to 1984 Sikh riots of Hond Chillar,Pataudi and Gurgaon.

Giaspura,a member of the coordination committee,had brought the issue to light in 2011 that 32 Sikhs were reportedly killed in Hond Chillar in Hisar,17 in Pataudi and 47 in Gurgaon in Haryana.

“All has been done with the aim of hampering the investigation,” said Giaspura who filed a case of burglary.

Reportedly,the accused came in a car with the registration number of Haryana.

Giaspura said that while he was not present in office at the time of the theft,his landlord informed him that locks were open on June 12. He immediately reached the office and found that the documents were missing.

“Though I had informed the police on the same day,the police took three days to register a case,” he alleged.

Focal Point SHO Inspector Gurtej Singh said the police registered the case under sections 454 and 380 of the IPC.

On March 4,2011,too,the burglars had struck in the house of Giaspura and fled with the massacre records. The police are yet to solve that case.
