“This year marks 30 years of impunity for the crimes committed during one of India’s most shameful episodes. It is a national disgrace that thousands of victims and survivors of the 1984 violence have been denied justice for three decades now,” said Shailesh Rai, Programmes Director at Amnesty International India. Amnesty International urges the government to establish an independent team to conduct thorough, impartial and effective investigations into all cases, including closed cases, of anti-Sikh violence in 1984.
