A tale of two encounters: Dehradun and Batla House

New Delhi: A day after it distanced itself from the remarks of party general secretary Digvijay Singh on the probe into the Batla House shootout, the Congress Friday made another turn, saying that any inquiry should be above board and not lead to questions about its conclusion.

“Every inquiry should be such that no fingers are pointed at the conclusion,” All India Congress Committee general secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reports.


Dwivedi said he was not speaking of the 2008 Batla House shootout probe only but any such inquiry.


He also said that it was not for political parties to decide the course of justice. “It is a judicial process. Such inquiries are decided by that system,” he said.


Asked about Digvijay Singh’s remarks about the Batla House shootout following his visit to Azamgargh, Dwivedi said the party leader had clarified his remarks.


Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi Thursday said in response to queries about Digvijay Singh’s remarks that “it was for him (Singh) to explain the meaning and scope of his words”.


Digvijay Singh, who is in-charge of Congress affairs in Uttar Pradesh, had said there had been complaints about the National Human Rights Commission’s probe into the Batla House shoot-out and that it had not taken the version of the aggrieved parties seriously.


Referring to photographs of one of the alleged Indian Mujahideen operatives killed in the shootout, he said the bullet injury in the head did not appear normal.


Digvijay Singh later clarified that he never termed the gunbattle fake.
