No interim relief to Sajjan Kumar in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case

The Supreme Court today refused to grant interim bail to former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, who is sentenced to life imprisonment in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. The top Court said it will hear his bail plea in summer vacations.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde, also said it will consider medical report from the AIIMS on the health condition of Kumar after completing the hearing in the Sabarimala reference matter. Kumar was awarded life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court on December 17, 2018.
