A Sikh youth allegedly tried to attack and hurled abuses at senior Congress leader and 1984-riots accused Jagdish Tytler at a marriage function in South Delhi's Chattarpur area.

Tytler escaped unhurt and the accused was arrested.

23-year-old Sehaj Umang Bhatia allegedly threw a piece of glass at Tytler and abused him during the function at a farm house in Mehrauli on Saturday night.

"Tytler was here to attend a wedding last night when Sehaj Umang Singh Bhatia threw a piece of glass at him and hurled abuses. Tytler was, however, not hit and was escorted to his vehicle safely," a senior police official said.

"The accused has been arrested and is being questioned," he added.

The attack comes a day after a Delhi court refused to accept the closure report and directed the CBI to conduct further investigation into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case against Tytler.

Attempts to contact Tytler for his comments over the attack did not fructify.
