’84 anti-Sikh riots: Another witness comes forward against Bachchan

Amritsar, December 15
After various Sikh outfits pointed fingers towards Amitabh Bachchan in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, an "eyewitness" has come forward alleging that the actor had provoked the rioters in the aftermath of assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
As per a release issued by Gurpatwant S. Pannun, legal adviser to 'Sikhs for Justice', 52-year-old Manjit Singh Saini, originally hailing from Kalu Sarai, Delhi, and at present residing in California, was present in front of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences on October 31, 1984, when Bachchan allegedly incited a mob to target a Sikh present there.
Pannun said Saini decided to break his silence after Bachchan approached Sri Akal Takht Sahib pleading innocence.
