NHRC notice to cops on Delhi encounter
September 26, 2008 17:03 IST
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Friday issued notice to the Delhi [Images] Police over the encounter in Jamia Nagar in which two suspected Indian Mujahideen [Images] militants linked with serial blasts in Delhi and other cities were killed.
The Commission issued the notice to city Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal and asked him to submit a report on the incident. The notice was issued on a complaint filed by an NGO, a senior NHRC official said.
Two suspected militants were shot dead in a gunbattle with the police in south Delhi's Jamia Nagar on September 19 in which Special Cell Inspector M C Sharma was also killed.
The police claimed that a 13-member module of the Indian Mujahideen was behind the serial blasts in the national capital which claimed over 20 lives and left about 100 injured. Five persons were also arrested last week for their alleged role in the blasts.
