Justice HS Phoolka argued that Sajjan Kumar was responsible for instigating a mob that killed many Sikhs in a block of Sultanpuri. Whereas Defence Lawyer Anil Kumar Sharma denied all the charges saying that Sajjan Kumar was not present on the scene.
Earlier Sajjan Kumar had challenged a lower court’s decision in High Court when he along with 5 others was pressed with charges of killing Surjeet Singh in the Sultanpuri area. The charges were pressed by victim Sheela Kaur who filed a petition in the High Court accusing Sajjan Kumar for conspiring the killings of her family members. The case was registered under Nanawati Commisson and a charge sheet was presented to the court by CBI in 2010.
