Jasbir Singh from the USA, a crucial eyewitness of genocide of Sikhs, allegedly masterminded by Jagdish Tytler, senior Congress leader from Delhi, has now offered himself to testify in the court of law.
Jasbir had given an affidavit to Jain Aggarwal and the Nanawati Commission and also to the CBI against the Congress leader alleging that he had rebuked his henchmen for killing less number of Sikhs as compared to other parts of Delhi. In a statement sent through his attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a US-based attorney, to India, Jasbir said he was ready despite the serious threats of life to him and his family for any inquiry or affidavit to pursue case against Tytler. The CBI may contact him through his lawyer to pursue the case.
He was an eyewitness to the infamous statement made by the Congress leader in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assasination where he had rebuked his henchmen for not killing a larger number of Sikhs.
Clearly, India’s premier investigating agency had committed a gross negligence for its failure to follow Jasbir’s crucial testimony. He had also organised many affidavits from various eyewitnesses. He said he had moved to the USA because of threats to his life.
The testimony of Jasbir Singh incriminating Tytler takes the case to an entirely different angle of conspiracy. But in its chargesheet the CBI simply said: ”Jasbir Singh could not be examined as he is abroad.”
Excerpt from Jasbir Singh’s affidavit
”I overheard Jagdish Tytler rebuking a group of men at the TB Hospital on November 3,1984, after Indira Gandhi’s assassination. Tytler was shouting at them and telling them there had only been nominal killing of Sikhs in his constituency, so his position in front of central leaders was compromised. Tytler reportedly said he had promised large-scale killing of Sikhs.”
