Convicted for his role in the anti- sikh riots case in 1984, former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar’s plea to delay his surrender has been rejected by Delhi High Court.
The HC says it sees no ground for granting extension of time to Sajjan Kumar to surrender.
Sajjan Kumar had approached the Delhi High Court seeking time till January 31 to surrender in connection with a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in which he was recently sentenced to life imprisonment.
Kumar, who was directed by the high court to surrender before authorities by December 31, sought more time saying he has to settle family affairs. After being convicted his had quit the party in a letter written to Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
