New Delhi, Dec 31 (IBNS):  Sajjan Kumar, who was recently convicted for his role in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, surrendered in a Delhi court on Monday.

According to reports, he will be taken to the Mandoli jail in east Delhi. 

Kumar recently resigned from the Congress party after he was convicted by the court.

The Delhi High Court this month convicted Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and sentenced to jail "for the remainder of his natural life" in the 1984 anti-Sikh riot case, annulling his acquittal by a lower court earlier.  

Following the assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1984, nationwide riots had broken out. In one incident five people were killed in the Delhi Cantonment area.

While Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was earlier acquitted, five others were convicted in that case related to the riot.
