Members of the Sikh community in Hyderabad on Friday staged protests at Gurudwara Guru Singh Sabha at Afzalgunj over the death of Sarabjit Singh and the acquittal of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.

Hundreds of Sikhs raised ‘anti-Pakistan’ and ‘anti-Congress’. Protesters burnt the effigies of the Pakistan government and Mr. Sajjan Kumar. Gurudwara Guru Singh Sabha president S. Kuldeep Singh Bagga said the acquittal of the Congress leader was an injustice to the Sikh community. General secretary S. Inderjeet Singh Tuteja said the Centre had failed to take steps to check harassment of Indian prisoners.
