1984 ri­ots con­vict gets bail

The Indian Express - - THECITY -

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court granted a week’s bail to Bal­wan Khokhar, who is serv­ing a life term in a 1984 an­ti­sikh ri­ots case.

A bench of Act­ing Chief Jus­tice Gita Mit­tal and Jus­tice Anu Mal­ho­tra granted bail to the for­mer Congress councillor as his wife is slated to un­dergo an oper­a­tion at AIIMS on May 15. Khokhar was awarded life im­pris­on­ment by a trial court in May 2013.

He had sought two-month bail, say­ing his wife had to un­dergo an oper­a­tion. Re­strain­ing him from trav­el­ling out of the cap­i­tal, the bench directed him to sur­ren­der in a week. ENS
