New Delhi, May 6 (UNI) A Delhi court on Monday allowed the personal exemption application of Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in a case related to the Pul Bangash area killings during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.CBI Special Judge Rakesh Syal allowed the personal exemption and hearing request on behalf of the counsel for the accused former Union Minister.After moving the application for exempting Tytler from personal appearance backed by copies of his medical record, Tytler's counsel Varun Kumar said, "He is admitted in Park Hospital for the last five days due to serious infection of lungs. So he is not in a position to appear before this Hon'ble Court."The counsel for the accused also sought adjournment on the ground that the main defence counsel Manu Sharma was unable to appear during the day following some personal problems.The judge put up the matter for arguments in rebuttal on behalf of the accused on May 20.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidhi Gupta Anand sent the case to the District Judge on September 11 last year. The ACMM Court committed the Matter to a Sessions Judge by noting in the order that Tytler was accused of murder (punishable under sections 302 of IPC), an offence "exclusively triable" by 'Courts of Sessions'.
Tytler had got bail with certain conditions including he would not tamper with the evidence in the case or not leave the country without the court's permission.
