The agency, which has filed three closure reports so far, made the move after fresh evidence surfaced. It has been decided to take voice samples only to compare the voice sample of Tytler with that in the video, officials said. “On Tuesday morning, Tytler arrived at the CFSL in the CGO complex where his voice sample was collected by experts,” an official said. Earlier, when Tytler was questioned by the CBI, he denied any role in the riots.
Speaking to the media, Tytler claimed that the summons were not related to the 1984 riots case. “What have I done? If there’s evidence against me, I am prepared to hang myself… It wasn’t related to the riots case for which they wanted my voice (sample), but another case,” he said after the procedure.Also ReadNarendra Modi Independence Day Speech Live Updates: India now identified ...Govt SOP for Judges: Do not name officials for court panelsShivaji statue vandalised in Goa, police initiate inquiry‘Will return to Red Fort next year’: In Independence Day speech, PM Modi ...
The case pertains to riots at Gurdwara Pul Bangash in North Delhi, where three people were killed on November 1, 1984, a day after the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi. The families of the victims had filed a protest petition challenging the CBI’s closure reports in the case. The CBI re-investigated the killings near the gurdwara after a court in December 2007 refused to accept its closure report.
