Didn't say Batla encounter was fake: Digvijay

Written by: Staff

Lucknow, Feb 4: Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh has said that he never termed Batla House encounter was fake.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Feb 5, he said, "I am not carrying out investigations... I am not an investigating agency. So, I am not in a position to say the encounter was fake... I haven't ever termed the encounter fake."

On Wednesday, Feb 3, Singh had raised doubts over the Batla House shootout that took place in Sep 2008 in New Delhi.

He had said, "I have seen the photographs of one of the boys killed in the encounter... The photo shows a bullet pierced his head... It should be noted that normally in encounters, one is not shot in the head."

Coming out in his self-defence, Singh said, "I have only said that bullet injury in head not appear normal in encounters," quickly adding, "As I have not conducted any inquiry, I am no one to tell about the encounter."

Two alleged Indian Mujahideen (IM) operatives and and a police officer were killed in the encounter.
