The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file an affidavit on an interim bail plea filed by 74-year-old former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar on health grounds, who was convicted in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

A bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy asked the agency to file its affidavit by September 6, over the medical condition of Kumar, who was convicted to life imprisonment for the brutal killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar in Delhi, during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. “The medical condition of the appellant be verified and an affidavit be filed within a week,” directed the Court in its order while issuing notice.

Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, appearing for Sajjan Kumar, submitted that his client has lost 14 kg. Kindly permit him to transfer from public to private hospital, he prayed. 

Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for the complainant said, “These accused got anticipatory bail in 2010. Total 150 people were slaughtered.” 

Mr Singh- I am not involved in this, I will show it to court. 

Dushyant Dave–  On, 4.9.2020, This Court has dismissed his bail. let it come after a week, I have serious reservations about these private hospitals.

Vikas Singh- Dr Randhir Sud in Medanta can examine his medical condition. He was attending him earlier.

Dave- Earlier AIIMS had examined it, now he wants to get treatment in private hospital, its a precarious situation. 

Justice Kaul- He is already in jail, which is already a precarious situation.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul- I am not passing any direction to examine by Dr Randhir in Medanta. “Learned counsel for the appellant states that Dr Randhir Sud, HOD, Medanta-The Medicity was earlier attending to the appellant. The State may verify the position and get the appellant appropriately examined. List on 06th September, 2021,” said the Court in its Order. 

Kumar, in his bail application, had contended before the apex court that he has been in jail since December, 2018 and had lost almost around 14 kg since then.
