NEW DELHI, India—Bail for Captain Bhagmal, a key culprit in the 1984 Sikh Genocide, has been retracted by the Delhi High Court yesterday, and has been ordered to surrender by July 17.

The retired Indian naval officer Captain Bhagmal has been on bail since March 24 on supposed medical grounds. He was granted bail by the court to be treated for an enlarged prostate but later he had extended his bail for an operation of his wife.

The probing agency Central Bureau of Investigation lodged a protest against the Court’s decision of granting him bail. The CBI had told the Delhi High Court in its status report that no serious cause was mentioned in Captain Bhagmal’s medical reports and even the doctors confirmed that these medical problems (enlarged prostate) were common in his age.  

Captain Bhagmal, a former Congress councilor Balwan Khokhar, and Girdhari Lal were sentenced to life in a case pertaining to the murder of five members of a family in Raj Nagar area of Delhi Cantonment on November 1, 1984.
