NEW DELHI: A court here on Wednesday granted two months' time to the CBI to complete its probe in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case in which Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was given clean chit by the agency.

After the probe agency informed the court that it has approached Interpol to obtain information from the Canadian High Commission, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Shivali Sharma asked the Central Bureau of Investigation to make a written submission to the Canadian mission.

The court posted the matter for July 11 for further hearing.

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.

The court had said it should be found out whether Verma's statement was true or not.

Verma, in his statement, told the CBI that Tytler had tried to influence one of the witnesses by giving him a hefty sum of money and promising to settle his son abroad.
