By P.T.I.

Outlook, Dec. 23, 2002

"[S]enior advocate H.S. Phoolka, who represented the families of victims of the riots in the Nanavati Commission, blamed the Delhi Police for Congress leader Sajjan Kumar's acquittal in the case stating that the cops did not carry out the probe 'honestly.' 'Dishonest investigation by the Delhi Police was a hurdle in the conviction of Kumar,' Phoolka told P.T.I. 'We will take up the matter with C.B.I. and ask them to file an appeal in the High Court,' Phoolka said. Advocate R.M. Tewary, who appeared for C.B.I. in the case said he will go through the judgement and ask the state to go for an appeal if possible."
