The Supreme Court on Monday sought a comprehensive status report on the probe into the 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases being investigated by the SIT set up in 2014.

A bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice R. Banumathi sought the report as petitioner S. Gurlad Singh Kahlon told the court that the Special Investigation Team has utterly failed in carrying out the probe.

The Centre earlier told the court that further investigation was on in 21 out of the total of 221 cases.

The court has adjourned the matter for next hearing on February 20.

      Now the SIT is finally happening close to elections. Good job. I dont want to play politics on this topic. But this is what BJP does. The law minister is pulling his strings. Shame on BJP. They are the lowest party ever seen on moral grounds.

          In actual fact, over 400 persons have been convicted for the riots. Doesn't mean that every one has been covered though.But the later it gets, the less chances of any further convictions.

            After so many years SC wakes up now shame on our system who don't provide justice to the macred people during the 1984 riots. Just before every elections these issues they remember to garner votes. Shame on govts.
