New Delhi, Jul 22: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) gave a clean chit to Delhi police in Batla House encounter case on Wednesday, Jul 22 after it had filed a enquiry report before the Delhi High Court.
NHRC said, "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 the police." It also said, "The action taken by police in which two persons died is fully protected by law."
A Bench headed by Chief Justice A P Shah took the report on record and asked the Commission to put the contents of the report on NHRC's website. The court also directed the Commission to give copy of the report to an NGO on whose plea it had directed the enquiry.
Earlier, the High Court had asked the NHRC to complete within two months its enquiry into the controversial encounter in which two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists and a police officer were killed.
