New Delhi: Jamia Millia teachers’ body, various civil rights groups and student organizations will hold a protest demonstration at the head office of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in New Delhi today evening to register their anger over the Commission’s enquiry report on the Batla House encounter.


For truth and justice, we reject the National Human Rights Commission's (NHRC) partisan conclusions,” said the statement signed by these organizations released yesterday.


Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Group (JTSG), All India Students’ Association (AISA) and Association for the Protection of Civil Rights (APCR) call for a protest demonstration against what they called as the NHRC’s farcical ‘Enquiry’ into the Batla House ‘Encounter’,  said the statement.


The demonstration will be held at the headquarters of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) located Faridkot House, Copernicus Marg, New Delhi at 4 pm today.


The NHRC in its report has given a clean chit to the Delhi Police in the Batla House encounter case, saying that the police opened fire in self-defence and thus there was no violation of any human rights. The rights groups have termed the encounter a fake one since the day one.


People of Azamgarh will also be demonstrating outside the District Magistrate’s office today against the NHRC report. People from several parts of the town specially from Sarai Meer and Sanjarpur areas – Sajid and Atif’s villages, the two who were killed in the encounter will assemble at the collector’s office today on Friday holding placards demanding judicial enquiry into the encounter.


Meanwhile, All India Muslim Majlis-E-Mushawarat (AIMMM) and Rashtriya Ulama Council, the body formed after the Batla House encounter too joined the rejection bandwagon and demanded proper investigations into the incidence.


"The hasty NHRC report seems to be solely based on police briefing and papers offered by the police which have been denied to relatives of the encounter victims", said AIMMM president Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan in his statement released last night.


"There is no indication that the commission bothered to contact relatives of the victims or residents of the area where the infamous encounter took place or the civil society organisations which conducted fact-finding about the event and expressed serious misgivings about the police version. Moreover, the NHRC did not deign to even acknowledge many representations made by the relatives of the victims sent to the commission by post", Dr. Khan said.


"As such, we reject this suspect and one-sided report and stick to our demand for a proper judicial enquiry into the incident which led to the murder of two young students and to the arrest of dozens of youngmen ostensibly to justify and cover up the murder by people in khaki", he said.


In his statement National president of Rashtriya Ulama Council Maulana Aamir Rashadi Madni said, "The report is wrong and the timing of its publication when people were describing the encounter as fake exposes the intention of the government."
