NEW DELHI -- A Delhi Court today directed that video recording of all the proceedings should be done in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving Congress leader Sajjan Kumar.

"In the Sajjan Kumar's matter, the court has today directed that the video recording of all the proceedings should be done and the system should be put for the video recording in the session judges court," said senior advocate H.S. Phoolka.

"And, on 29th January, the court has given the date to test the system of recording of the proceedings, and thereafter, the witnesses recording of the evidence will start," he added.

Phoolka further said, "This is very rare that the video recording of the proceedings is done but in view of the allegations earlier that the evidence was not being recorded correctly and in view of those allegations by the victims that the case has been transferred to another session judge."

"Therefore, the High Court directed and today the court has also directed that the video recording of the entire proceedings should be done," he added.

The Delhi High Court had earlier transferred from the Karkardooma Court to the Patiala House Court the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case involving Sajjan Kumar 'in view of the controversy generated' over allegations that the evidence was not being properly recorded.

The high court had also requested the District and Sessions Judge, Patiala House Court, to video record the proceedings at the cost of the parties in the case, the petitioner and CBI.
