1984 Anti-Sikh riots: Delhi HC upholds the conviction of 88 people

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday upheld the conviction of around 88 people and awarded five-year jail term in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

The high court dismissed their appeals against the conviction by a trial court for burning houses and curfew violations during the riots.

Justice R K Gauba directed all the convicts to surrender within four weeks.

The convicts had challenged the August 27, 1996 judgement of a Sessions Court which had convicted 88 out of the 107 people arrested on November 2, 1984, for rioting, burning houses and curfew violation in Trilokpuri area of East Delhi.
