Reversing the trial court judgement, the Delhi High Court today convicted Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

Sajjan Kumar was acquitted by a Delhi court in 2013 in the case pertaining to the murder of five members of a Sikh family in Delhi.

 Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a petition in High Court challenging the verdict. The High Court had ordered day to day hearing in Kumar's acquittal case. In a big setback to Kumar, last month a witness and victim Cham Kaur identified Kumar as the instigator in 1984 riots.

Another witness named Sheela Kaur also identified him in connection with the case. Kumar and two other accused are facing trial on the charges of murder and rioting in the case.

 In March, the Delhi High Court had received a petition containing a CD, which was stated to be Kumar's confession about accepting his role in the riots.
