Justice (Retired) Shiv Narayan Dhingra will head the new committee that will re-investigate 186 closed cases related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Retired IAS officer Rajdeep Singh and IPS officer Avishek Dullar will be other two members of the committee that will re-investigate the cases.
The committee will file an interim report within two months in the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered a re-investigation of 186 cases that were closed earlier by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) in connection with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The court will hear the matter next on March 19.
