Sajjan Kumar is going to end in Jail till death

Sajjan Kumar
He has been a crucial Congress leader. He was a member of Parliament of 14th Lok Sabha.

He has been an influential politician for anti- Sikh Program post assassination of Indira Gandhi in 1984.
He received a jail term for “remainder of this natural life”. Political leader often provoke riots and political patronage is used for their protection. Decades pass in delivering justice, and this needs a strong legal system.
Indian Judicial system lacks in addressing the crime against humanity and genocide. These are loopholes and need an urgent attention.
Other Examples of Familiar pattern of killing
The anti- Sikh Riot is not only one incident, there have been familiar cases of mass killing for example during 1993 in Mumbai, In Gujarat 2002, in Odisha, in Muzaffarnagar in 2013.

When Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated on 31st October 1984 by her Sikh Body guard, this provoked riots for four days and many Sikhs were killed.
Administrative Failure
During that time administration did not control the situation, and Policemen – who are now in Jail were also involved. Four days have been one among the darkest incident in Indian History.
