Thirty four years ago, two young Sikh men were killed by a mob in Mahipalpur village in south Delhi. The two men who lost their lives on November 1, 1984, were Hardev Singh, who was then 24 years old, and Avtar Singh, 26. The home ministry had constituted a special investigating team (SIT) in 2015 to probe the 1984 riot cases. On November 14, the court had convicted Singh and Sherawat for killing two men - the first conviction in the cases reopened by the SIT. It was an eyewitness testimony that proved crucial in the conviction of the duo accused of killing two Sikh men during the 1984 riots in the national capital.
Both accused were also convicted of dacoity, attempt to murder and other serious charges for they attacked the victims with a common intention and burnt their business establishments.
