IINTRODUCTION
The assassination of Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi on 31-10-1984, by hertwo Sikh security guards, led to violent attacks on Sikhs and their properties in Delhi andother parts of the country. The incidents of violence in Delhi started from the evening of 31-10-84. During the following two days fierce violence was let loose on the Sikhs andtheir properties. Hundreds of Sikhs were killed. Several others were injured. Theirproperties were looted and burnt on a very large scale. Though the incidents of violencecontinued till 5-11-84 the situation started improving from 3-11-84. As a result of theseriots, hundreds of Sikhs had to leave their homes and take refuge in relief camps or inother safer places. Many Sikh families lost their male members and thus suffered greatemotional and heavy financial loss. Bokaro Tehsil, Chas Tehsil and Kanpur were alsobadly affected. The Home Minister made a statement on the floor of the Rajya Sabha thatthe number of Sikhs killed in Delhi during November 1984 riots was 2146; 586 personswere said to have been killed in other parts of the country during that period. Theseanti-Sikh riots not only hurt the feelings of Sikhs but also shocked the conscience of allright-minded persons throughout the country. Considering the manner in which theviolent attacks were made, it was felt that probably the attacks on Sikhs were organizedby the Congressmen or their supporters or by some other organizations or associations. Itwas also felt that the Delhi Police was not only negligent in protecting the Sikhs and theirproperties but probably connived at or instigated such attacks. Considering the feelingsof the Sikh community and criticism of the bodies concerned with protection of humanrights and civil liberties, the Government of India appointed a Commission headed byMr. Justice Ranganath Mishra, the then Hon’ble Chief Justice of India, under Section 3 of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1952 “ to inquire into the allegations in regard to theincidents of organized violence which took place in Delhi and also the disturbanceswhich took place in the Bokaro Tehsil, Chas Tehsil and at Kanpur and to recommendmeasures which may be adopted for prevention of recurrence of such incidents.”
