New Delhi, Aug 26 (ANI0: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday accepted the findings of the National Human Rights Commission's (NHRC) giving clean chit to Delhi Police in the Batla House encounter case and declined to institute a judicial probe into the gun-battle.

On July 22 , the NHRC had given a clean chit to the Delhi Police in the case.
