Nanavati report to be tabled in Budget session

February 13, 2005 20:58 IST

Union Law Minister H R Bhardwaj on Sunday said the Nanavati Commission report on the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 would be tabled during the Budget Session of Parliament.

He was replying to questions posed by journalists during a visit to Mahakaleshwar mutt, about 45 km from Yamuna Nagar in Haryana, for a Basant Panchmi function.

There have been speculations about the report's contents.

Ever since Justice G T Nanavati, a retired Supreme Court judge,  submitted the two-volume, 185-page report to Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil in New Delhi on Wednesday, the Sikh community and opposition parties have been demanding that it be 'made public'.

An estimated 3,000 people were killed in the national capital in the riots, which followed then prime minister Indira Gandhi's assassination on October 31, 1984.

The Commission of Inquiry's report contains findings on whether any political party was behind the riots.
