Batla Case: Assorted Seculars want only “Guilty” verdict


National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Wednesday gave clean chit to Delhi Police in Batla House encounter case in which two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists and a decorated police officer were killed last year.

"We are clearly of the opinion that having regard to the material placed before us, it cannot be said that there has been any violation of human rights by action of police,"

However, it seems that Muslims leadership led by like of Shabnam Hashmi self professed Human right activist and Muslim MP’s from JD (U) and RLD are not satisfied by the verdict. Even Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Group has rejected the NHRC’s report on the Batla House ‘encounter’, which gives a clean chit to the Delhi Police. Now they are demanding judicial inquiry into the "encounter" by an SIT appointed by the Delhi High Court.

These assorted activists even want to re-examine the manner of appointment of members of the NHRC and its powers. As according to them current NHRC is toothless and tame body.

Nb.: I will not be surprised if these same activists demand an inquiry by UN Human Rights Commission if even Judicial Inquiry gives clean chit to police!
