A Delhi court on December 2 sentenced nine persons including four women of a family to rigorous imprisonment for three years for forcibly occupying a property of Prakash Kaur during anti-Sikh riots in 1984 that erupted in the wake of assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The court directed the area S.H.O. to get the possession of the property to Kaur within 15 days.

There had been a dispute over the property, a crockery shop at Galli Tokariwalan, Azad Market between the two parties.

When Kaur had visited her shop on November 20, 1984 she found the accused occupying it.
