Batla House encounter 3 yrs on: Demand for impartial probe raised

Monday September 19, 2011 01:04:49 PM, Agencies

New Delhi: On third anniversary of the Batla house encounter September 19, hundreds of people including civil rights activists, students and residents of Delhi, participated in a protest march from Batla house, at Okhla, a Muslim suburb in New Delhi to the Prime Minister’s residence and demanded an inquiry into "suspicious encounter” and questioned “arrests of Muslim youths after every blast”.

“Even the PM has accepted that minorities fear prosecution after bomb blasts. How can peace be possible under this psychology of fear? The government and the investigating agencies should send a clear message that justice and investigation into the bomb blasts can co-exist", Faisal Khan of National Alliance for People’s Movement (NAPM) said while addressing the rally.

Stating that the Batla house encounter is a blot on the idea of justice, Khan demanded constitution of a commission of enquiry which could investigate into all the bomb blasts and encounters including Batla house encounter.

VK Tripathi from Sadbhawna Mission attributed the fake encounters and illegal arrest of Muslim youths to the growth of communalization which in turn is a byproduct of corporatization of the Indian society.

The speakers on this occasion highlighted the fact that in spite of strong evidence pointing to the staged ‘encounter,’ demands for an independent probe into the killings were rejected by the Home Ministry.

The protest march couldn’t reach Prime Minister’s residence because Delhi police stopped the protestors in the vicinity of Jamia Millia Islamia itself.

Organizations which participated in the protest march included National Alliance of People’s Movement (NAPM), ANHAD, Asha Parivar, Yuva Koshish, Lohiya Vichar Manch, Sadhbhavana Mission, Khudai Khidmatgar, Inqalab Zindabad, Qaumi Raabta Council besides several others.
