    Congress leader Jagdish Tytler has been charged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the 39-year-old anti-Sikh riots case in Delhi. The charge sheet was filed at Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court after fresh evidence was found against him. The CBI had collected voice samples of the Congress leader in connection with the violence in the Pul Bangash area in 1984, where three people were killed. Tytler is accused of inciting a mob that murdered the victims.

    On November 22, 2005, the CBI registered a case on an incident where Gurudwara Pul Bangash at Azad Market, Bara Hindu Rao, Delhi was set on fire by a mob and three persons were burnt to death on November 1, 1984 near Gurudwara Pul Bangash. The Ministry of Home Affairs (Government of India) issued directions to CBI to investigate the case against then Member of Parliament and others after considering the Justice Nanavati Commission of Inquiry report on the incidents of anti-Sikh riots in Delhi in 1984.

    During CBI investigation, evidence came on record that on November 1, 1984, the accused allegedly instigated, incited and provoked the mob assembled at Gurudwara Pul Bangash at Azad Market, Delhi which resulted in burning of Gurudwara Pul Bangash and killing of three Sikh persons by the mob, apart from burning and looting of shops. A charge sheet has been filed today by the official after investigation.
