Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena has given his approval for filing a special leave petition in the Supreme Court against a July 10 Delhi High Court order which acquitted six accused in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, officials said on Saturday.


Saxena also “slammed” the prosecution department of the Delhi government for the alleged “callous delay” in the matter, the officials of the LG’s office said.

The LG directed the Home Department to identify and fix accountability of officials responsible for causing the delay and sought a report within seven days, they said.
