Batla encounter: BJP accuses Digvijay of being sympathetic towards 'extremistmilitants'
New Delhi, Jan 12 (ANI): With Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh raking up the Batla House encounter issue, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday hit out at the former and accused him of being sympathetic towards 'extremist militants'.
"He is not sympathetic to the martyred police officer, but sympathises with extremist militants. This is also an insult to the Muslim community. We feel that extremism has no religion, but they connect Muslims with extremism. This is Digvijay's politics," said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar.
Digvijaya Singh had earlier said that the encounter was fake, and added it could not be probed, as the Prime Minister and Home Minister believed the encounter was true.
"The prime minister and home minister were of the view that the encounter was true. That's why I did not press it further," he said.
Batla House encounter officially known as Operation Batla House, took place on September 19, 2008, against suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi, in which two suspected terrorist, Atif Amin and Mohamed Sajid, two other suspects Mohd Saif and Zeeshan were arrested, while one accused Ariz Khan managed to escape.
Encounter specialist and Delhi Police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the police action was also killed during the incident. (ANI)
