New Delhi, Feb 6 (ANI): Hundreds of protestors demonstrated on Friday for a judicial inquiry into the Batla House gun battle that took place in New Delhi in September 2008, in which the Delhi Police killed two suspected Indian Mujahideen militants and also lost one of its ace inspectors.

The protestors carried placards in support of those arrested and demanded their immediate release.

Amanatullah, worker of Delhi State Congress Party, said that they considered this encounter fake and demanded a judicial enquiry into the incident.

"Our demands are that the encounter which took place at L-18 Batla House a proper judicial investigation should be conducted into it and the innocent children who are languishing in the jails should be released," said Amanatullah.

"After reading today's paper I really felt sad that some Members of Parliament and the Members of legislative assembly had requested Sonia Gandhi for a judicial enquiry and she had even agreed on this but I'm sad that her advise was ignored and the Prime Minster had said that this will weaken the morale of the police and I would say that this is against humanity," said Feroze, a resident.

Two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists who were killed were identified as Atif Amin and Mohd Sajid. Two other IM suspects Mohd Saif and Zeeshan were arrested from the Batla House area. (ANI)
