HS Phoolka1

The famous senior high court lawyer who fought cases for 1984 victims even during times when everyone else had forgotten about them.

Known as H. S. Phoolka, is a senior advocate of Delhi High Court, politician, Human Rights activist, and author. He is known for spearheading one of the longest and most tortuous legal[1] “crusades” to gain justice for the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots and fighting individual cases on the involvement of Congress-I leaders H. K. L. BhagatSajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler despite the government cover-up. 

He received threatening letters or unearthing involvements of ruling political party leaders in what the Asian Age called “the Mother of all Cover-ups” in a front-page story. The special anniversary edition of the Outlook included Phoolka in its list of 50 people that make a difference in India, alongside Amartya Sen and Abhinav Ghosh. He is contesting 2014 Lok Sabha Polls as an AAP Candidate from Ludhiana .
