No Fresh FIR Against Tytler: CBI


New Delhi: The CBI on Friday told a Delhi court that no fresh FIR has been lodged against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, who has been given clean chit in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, on allegations of influencing witness and money laundering.

CBI’s reply came while responding to the court’s query whether the agency has registered any case against Tytler under sections 193 (punishment for false evidence), 195A (threatening a person to give false evidence) of IPC and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The court has now fixed the case for July 30 for filing of protest petition against CBI’s third closure report giving clean chit to Tytler in the case.

Senior advocate HS Phoolka and advocate Kamna Vohra, who were representing the victims, sought four weeks time to file the protest petition.

The court had earlier asked CBI to respond to allegations that Tytler had allegedly tried to influence a witness by giving him money and sending his son abroad and also alleged hawala transaction.
