Five others -- Balwan Khokkar, an ex-councillor, Mahender Yadav, an ex-MLA, Kishan Khokkar, Girdhari Lal and Captain Bhagmal -- were convicted for their involvement in the riots that had broken out after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984.

Mr Kumar, a former Lok Sabha MP from Outer Delhi who was refused a Congress ticket for 2009 Lok Sabha elections, still face trial in another 1984 riot case. In a third case, the Delhi Police have filed a closure report, saying there was no evidence against Mr Kumar to implicate him.

CBI sources said the agency's legal department has studied the judgement and highlighted several strong grounds on the basis of which it is likely to approach the Delhi High Court challenging the acquittal of Kumar. His acquittal has led to protests by Sikh outfits in the national capital and in parts of Punjab.

They said CBI would approach the Law Ministry seeking its approval for initiation of the process of appeal in the high court to challenge the verdict.
