Sajjan Kumar, convicted in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case surrenders in Karkardooma Court. The former Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, was convicted by Delhi's Patiala House court earlier this month.

Court has sent him to Mandoli Jail. Court has also ordered that a separate van would be provided for his movement due to security reasons.

Convicts Mahender Yadav and Kishan Khokhar have reached Delhi's Karkardooma Court to have surrendered. Court accepted their surrender application. Mahender Yadav has been allowed to carry his walking stick and spectacles by the Court.

Kumar has been awarded life imprisonment in the 1984 riots as Delhi High Court has rejected his plea to extend the deadline for surrender. The police will take him to the high-security Tihar jail.

Sajjan Kumar was convicted in the killing of five members of a family in Raj Nagar and setting a gurdwara on fire on November 1, 1984 by the Delhi High Court.
