New Delhi, Jan 30 (PTI) The Delhi High Court Wednesday asked the AAP government to decide in two weeks the parole plea of Balwan Khokhar, who along with former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was sentenced to life imprisonment in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

 

 

 

Justice Najmi Waziri asked the Delhi government to treat former Congress councillor Khokhar’s plea as a representation and to communicate its decision to him in two weeks.

 

With the direction, the court disposed off the petition seeking parole for a month to file a special leave petition in the Supreme Court against the high court’s December 17 decision.
