The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is facing flak from several sections for giving clean-chit to the Delhi police in the infamous Batla House encounters' case.
Mass circulated Urdu newspaper Roznama Rashtriya Sahara questions whether the NHRC has become Police Protection Commission (PPC)? It goes on to raise serious doubts over the probe report.
Senior journalist Aziz Burney says that the NHRC's ambit was limited to determining whether the action of police to fire on the youths inside the house in Jamia Nagar, was correct or not.
By dissecting the entire episode and analysing the turn of events, Burney writes that the plea taken by NHRC that the police shot at the youths in self-defence. Besides, civil rights groups have strongly condemned the report.
They claim that there was no independent inquiry and the witnesses were not examined. Muslim members of Parliament (MPs) including JD(U)'s Ejaz Ali have said that the police was guilty of excesses.
Rajya Sabha MP Mahmood Madani has also refused to accept the report and asked the government to conduct a judicial inquiry. Social organisations have also expressed surprise on the nature of inquiry.
Various other groups and organisations like People’s Union for Democratic Rights, Anhad and Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Group have said that the report is merely based on police version and doesn't bother to take into account any other version.
