Will support any probe in anti-sikh riots, says Congress
New Delhi: The Congress party has assured of supporting any probe into the 1984 riots after the Supreme Court constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to further probe 186 anti-Sikh riots cases closed by an earlier SIT on wednesday.
"I don't have not full information about the Supreme Court order. But, if there is any order to do an investigation to ensure full inquiry, the Congress will always support it," said Congress spokesperson RPN Singh.
"If any torture has been done to the Sikh community, there should be a probe into it and if anyone found guilty, must be punished," he added.
