Malegaon: Encouraged by the probe report terming Ishrat killing as a case of 'fake encounter', Jamia Teachers' Solidarity Association backed by human right activist in an attempt to pressurise the government for Judicial probe into the Batla House encounter has filed an online petition.


Stating that Narendra Modi or BJP governments are not alone when it comes to such encounters and minority witch-hunts in the name of ‘fighting terrorism’, the petition says, "Arbitrary killings and arrests of Muslim youth and their implication in false cases continue unabated across the country in state after state ruled by constituents of both the UPA and the NDA."


The online petition addressed to the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh is filed by Jamia Teachers' Solidarity Association, the group at the forefront of the movement for judicial probe into the Batla House encounter.


The special cell of the Delhi police has killed two Azamgarh youths on September 19, last year in the encounter claiming they were operatives of the terrorist organisations.


Quoting form Civil right activists reports that had pointed out loopholes in the police version and the photographic evidence of the dead bodies showing external injuries, the petition asks, "If indeed, as the Delhi Police claims, the boys fired upon the police party, and were killed in return fire, how was it that there were injury marks on the bodies?"


The petition claims that bullet injuries on the forehead of 17-year-old Sajid indicates that he had been shot while being forced to squat or kneel.


Urging the Prime Minister to institute a Judicial Probe, under a sitting judge of the Supreme Court to verify the truth behind the Batla House encounter, the petition says, "In the light of recent revelations from Gujarat in the case of Ishrat Jehan we believe that it is only appropriate, ethical, and legally incumbent upon the UPA government to re-open the Batla House encounter case. We strongly feel that the truth must come out in the Batla House encounter in the interests of justice and as a deterrent to the politics of murder indulged in by sections of the Indian police."


Earlier, Lt. Governor of Delhi refused to allow a magisterial enquiry into the encounter. Also, a probe report by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has given clean chit to the Delhi police for the Batla House encounter. Parents of the slain Azamgarh boys and human and civil rights activists however rejected the NHRC report claiming the commission prepared the report without bothering to visit the spot and taking views of the neighbours, rights groups and the parents.
