Accusing the Delhi police personnel of remaining passive and not providing protection to the people during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, the  Nanavati Commission on Monday said if 'timely action' had been taken by the police against
rioters, many lives could have probably been saved. 

Making a number of general observations about the role of Delhi police during the riots, the Commission, in its 339-page report said 'police personnel remained passive and did not provide protection to the people.'
