Nearly a year after a Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed by the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh to examine and re-investigate 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases of Kanpur, the SIT has moved the court to seek permission to further investigate 10 cases in which the local police had earlier filed closure reports. SIT has also requested the government to file an appeal against the lower court’s judgment in five other cases.
