    A Delhi court on Thursday ruled that 2008 Batla House encounter was genuine and convicted lone suspected Indian Mujahideen operative Shahzad Ahmed of killing Delhi police inspector MC Sharma.

    The court will decide on the quantum of punishment to Shahzad Ahmed on July 29, Times Now reported.

    Additional sessions judge Rajender Kumar Shastri had on July 20 reserved the judgement after conclusion of final arguments by the prosecution and the defence.

    During the trial, the prosecution examined 70 witnesses, including six eye-witnesses who were part of the raiding team of Delhi Police special cell.

    In its final arguments, the prosecution had contended that it has sufficient circumstantial evidence and phone records to prove that Shahzad was present in the Jamia Nagar flat in Batla House and was among those who had fired at the police team leading to the death of Delhi Police inspector M C Sharma.

    It had said that Shahzad, along with another accused Junaid, had jumped off the balcony and fled after firing at the police team during the September 19, 2008 Batla House encounter.

    The counsel, appearing for Shahzad, however, had claimed that he was not present in the flat in which the alleged shootout took place.

    The defence had claimed that as per ballistic reports, the bullets found in the slain police officer's body matched the gun seized from the spot and not from the weapon which was allegedly retrieved from Shahzad's possession when he was arrested.

    It was contended on his behalf that none of the witnesses had given any description of the occupants of the flat.

    Shahzad is said to be one of the occupants of the flat in Jamia Nagar where the encounter took place on September 19, 2008 between the officers of the special cell and the suspected IM terrorists allegedly involved in the September 13, 2008 serial blasts at Karol Bagh, Connaught Place, Greater Kailash and India Gate left 26 dead and 133 injured.

    Other accused named in the chargesheet are Junaid, Mohd Atif Ameen, alias Bashir, and Mohd Sajid. However, Mohd Saif was not made an accused as he had allegedly locked himself inside the toilet in L-18 flat of Batla House when the encounter was on and had surrendered peacefully.

    While Atif and Sajid had been shot dead in the encounter, Junaid has been declared a proclaimed offender in the case as he is absconding.

    During the trial, Shahzad had called as defence witnesses Saif and Zeeshan, both lodged in Sabarmati jail in Ahmedabad in connection with the serial blasts of July 26, 2008 there, to show that he was not at the spot.

    LOL, this too was a fake encounter. Killing any terrorist in India is always a fake encounter like Ishrat Jahan case.

    As per Salman Khurshid, Mrs. Gandhi wept openly when informed about the Batla House encounters. Now what do the two have to say about each other and what about the jumping joker who had gone to Azamgarh to proclaim the innocence of the terrorists.


    Edit: Mrs. Gandhi had cried on being shown the pics of the slain men.-- As quoted by Mr.Salman Khurshid.

    Tasleem Poonawalla of the Youth Congress dot com lied through his teeth in the debate in NewsX before the verdict came out that Khurshud did not say that Batla House made Sonia G cry!

    He was so furious that he was shouting, that is this Poonawall, which a rasping high pitched voice, and all his veins on his throat was bulging.

    I thought he would break a blood vessel and then bleed to death wherein the other participant and the anchor would be hauled up for abetting a suicide! :horror:

    Whatever, Diggy did put me in two minds over this encounter. Now, that the Court has adjudicated, I can rest my apprehensions.

    Now the dirty politics and face saving exercise of Congress will start. New judicial inquiries, new (false) evidences, high court appeal and they will prove a terrorist is actually a poor innocent guy. We are seeing the same game in case of Ishrat case.

    Any politician who claimed batla house encounter was fake should now swallow a spool of barbed wire while the other end is yanked out of the other end of their alimentary canal.

    This Poonawaala was on Headlines Today with G.Parthasarthy, former High Commissioner to Pakistan and got into a slanging match trying to prove that US was a beacon of Human Rights and the MPs had done the right thing by signing the letter to President Obama. As soon as the camera shifted to another speaker on the background Mr.Parthasarthy could be clearly be heard advising Poonawaala how big an ass he had been and how he had put his party and the country in an embarrassing position. The look on his face was priceless.

    So unfortunate that I missed this Ponnawala circus from my daily staple of TV debates.

    He has lost many after shamelessly brandishing his "pseudo-secular" credentials.

    Digvijay Singh stands by his views!

    Congress stands by its views or so says Abhishek Manu Sanghvi.

    Poonawala says in a democracy every person has his own opinion and so there is nothing wrong is there is two different views and both are right.

    That all very fine.

    But it leaves the actual constituents of a democracy - the people - quite confused as to what is the Congress view, more so, since Digvijay Singh is not a Johnny come Lately like Tasheem Poonawala, but a General Secretary and a person who knows, helps formulate the party line and thus is taken to be speaking the Congress party's party line!

    And Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi who are the last word as the Führer in Germany, are cold and silent like grave tombstones!

    Could Amartya Sen clear the air since he is a know all?

    Or Bhagwati?

    Somebody should!

    One thing that intrigues me about this Batla House affair is that the Police Force appears to have gone for a routine investigation, having been tipped off.

    Or else why were some of the unarmed and why was the Team Leader with BP jacket?

    When one is sure people are terrorists, then one does not go like Rambo, more so, since now all know of the dangers to life and limb that can happen after the incident of the Police chief who was shot up when he went to check at the Taj Mahal Hotel during the Mumbai terrorist attack!
