The Delhi High Court has refused to stay proceedings against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases.

64-year-old Kumar, a former Member of Parliament from outer Delhi, has approached the high court against trial court's order, which had on February 15 refused to grant him anticipatory bail.

The Central Bureau of Investigation had chargesheeted 13 people, including Kumar, on January 13 in two separate 1984 riots cases for allegedly making provocative speeches, leading to the killing of 12 persons in the violence that broke out following the assassination of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi.

The probe agency had filed the chargesheets in the court after concluding its investigation into the cases registered on the recommendation of Nanavati Commission in 2005.
