{image-Amar Singh_07102008.jpg}Panaji, Oct 7: Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh said "Shoot them if they are terrorists. But if they are innocent, then they should be given justice," and added, "If a judicial probe says they are innocent, then we can think of withdrawing support to the UPA government." Singh made the statement while talking on the issue of deceased Delhi Police (Special Cell) Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma's family rejecting his Rs 10 lakh offer. "I feel sad that his family has reacted in this manner," he said on Tuesday, Oct 7.

Amar Singh also indicated that his party could withdraw support to the UPA government if the two students of Jamia Millia Islamia arrested in connection with the Delhi serial blasts were proved to be innocen. Renewing his demand for a judicial probe into the Batla House encounter in which Inspector Sharma was killed, Singh said senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani has agreed to take up the case of the two students following his request. Further, the SP leader said he will pay the legal expenses for the students after speaking to authorities of the Jamia Millia University.

Citing media reports, Singh said doubts have been raised about the Batla House encounter and the subsequent arrest of the students. "A judicial probe is necessary to clear all confusions," he said. He, however, said his statement did not mean to support any terrorist "but at the same time innocents should not be harassed".
