The apex court had said recently that it was to "review" the report of a special committee on the 241 cases of atrocities perpetrated against the Sikhs in 1984.

The other two members of the committee are retired Indian Administrative Service officer Rajdeep Singh and Indian Police Service officer Avishek Dullar. The petitions filed by Singh and Manjit Singh GK had alleged that the SIT had scrutinised 293 cases and closed 199 of them after scrutiny.

The court directed the Centre to announce names for the three-member SIT on Wednesday itself; the Supreme Court announced that the SIT would be headed by a former High Court judge.

The court will hear the matter next on 19 March.

It had said that with regard to the nature of cases, "it would be appropriate that a fresh SIT should be constituted for carrying on the further investigation".

Deciding to set up a new SIT, the Supreme Court today held that the previous SIT had not carried out further probe into the 186 cases in which closure reports were filed.

In a major decision, the Supreme Court of India has ordered re-investigation of the cases relating to the unprecedented anti-Sikh riots which broke out late in 1984. It had said that nine cases were still being investigated by the SIT, while two cases are being probed by CBI.

SIT had earlier closed 186 cases connected to the anti-Sikh riots.
