CM Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday requested Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to order a probe by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the 1984 riots with the issue having triggered a debate following Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's recent interview to a TV channel. "The Lt-Governor was positive about it. As far as constitution of an SIT and fixing the terms of reference are concerned, we will decide that at the next meeting," Kejriwal said. Seeking to strike a contrast between the roles played by the government during the 1984 riots and the 2002 riots, Rahul had said, the simple difference is that in 1984, the government wasnt not involved in the massacre of people. In Gujarat, it was.
