New Delhi, July 11 (IANS) A court here on Monday pulled up the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and gave them a last chance to complete its probe in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in which Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was given clean chit by the agency.

As CBI filed its status report in the case before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Shivali Sharma, she pulled up the agency for not taking proper steps to complete the probe.

The CBI also sought two more months for further investigation, which was allowed.

The court fixed September 14 as the next date of hearing in the case.

The court on December 4, 2015, ordered the CBI to further investigate a riots case against Tytler, pointing to arms dealer Abhishek Verma’s statement that Tytler had tried to influence a witness.
