Stating that the matter was sub judice,the Congress on Wednesday avoided commenting on the lower court order directing the CBI to reopen the 1984 anti-Sikh riot case against its senior leader Jagdish Tytler.

The court has set aside an earlier magisterial court order that had accepted CBI’s closure report in the case.

“Law will take its own course,” said party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary. She also said there was no evidence against Tytler. When asked about the Congress often raising the issue of Gujarat riots,she said,“Whosoever is violating the law,let them face the consequences”.

Another party leader contended that there was no need for the party to be apologetic about the court verdict. He said the BJP had inducted Gujarat leader Amit Shah into the party hierarchy though he has been chargesheeted.

The party termed the incident where Mamata Banerjee was heckled by SFI activists as “regrettable”.
