After Yakub Menon What about Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar

Thu, Jul 30, 2015 at 3:16 PM
3000 innocent citizen were murdered
Ludhiana: 30 July 2015: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
Yakub Memon is executed for killing 257 innocent citizens. On the other hand the BJP - Akali Government at Centre continue to shield the people like Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar who have murdered over 3000 innocent citizen in open day light in the capital. It is unfortunate that under this government, first CBI quietly files the Closure Report without informing the Media or even the victim and then the CBI refuses to register case against Tytler for influencing the witnesses and Hawala Transaction inspite of overwhelming material available with the CBI.
In the case of Sajjan Kumar, the missing chargesheet prepared on 8th April 1992 for murder of five innocents where Sajjan Kumar is accused, is still not filed in the Court and is pending with the CBI now.
Modi ji, Badal ji, those 3000 killed in Delhi were also citizens of this Country. While in opposition you used to raise this issue to get political benefit and attain power. After forming the Government why have you started shielding them. even more blatently then by the Congress Government.Today’s hearing in Tytler case in Karkardooma court regarding the Clean Chit given by CBI to Jagdish Tytler has been adjourned to 14th August 2015 due to Lawyers strike.
