New Delhi: Cobrapost exposes for the first time on camera the complicity of Delhi Police officers in the anti-Sikh riots of 1984, which resulted in more than 3,000 deaths in the national capital
New Delhi: In an investigation, Cobrapost exposes officers of Delhi Police. While most of them candidly admitting to their failure as a force, some of them confessed that the top brass of the police force colluded with the government of the day to teach Sikhs “a lesson”.
These police officers are Shoorveer Singh Tyagi, then Station House Officer (SHO) Kalyanpuri; Rohtas Singh, SHO Delhi Cantonment; S. N. Bhaskar, SHO Krishna Nagar; O. P. Yadav, SHO Srinivaspuri; and Jaipal Singh, SHO Mehrauli. S.C. Tandon, then chief of police, conveniently parried all questions and Gautam Kaul, then Additional Commissioner of Police, straightaway rejected the idea that he had any first-hand knowledge of rioting.
