The second case has been filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the Nanavati Commission’s recommendation, ANI reported.
The Delhi High Court had found Kumar guilty of criminal conspiracy, promoting enmity and acts against communal harmony and imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on him.
Kumar, who has been given till 31 December to surrender, resigned from the primary membership of the Congress after the verdict was pronounced.
The riots broke out after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards on 31 October 1984.
After more than 30 years in which the victims and relatives of those killed and affected by the violence protested and moved court, things seem to be taking a turn this year.
In November, a Delhi court awarded death sentence to one person and handed over a life sentence to another for their role in the riots. This was the first conviction in five of the eight cases that were reopened and investigated by an SIT, which was constituted in 2015.
