The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Wednesday filed an investigation report in relation to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case allegedly involving Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, who was earlier given a clean chit by the agency.

The CBI filed the report in a link court as Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Shivali Sharma was on leave. The court adjourned the matter to December 4, 2016, after receiving the report in a sealed envelope.

In July this year, the court had pulled up the CBI and directed it to file its report within two months. The investigation agency had re-investigated the case after a court had, in December 2007, refused to accept the closure report. The CBI has so far filed three closure reports in the case. ENS
