Malegaon: Eminent Supreme Court lawyer and human rights activist Prashant Bhushan says the post-mortem report of slain terror suspects Atif Ameen and Mohd Sajid of Batla House encounter has blasted the police version about the encounter.
Bhushan, who is the defense lawyer of some of the Delhi serial blast accused was speaking with one of the leading Indian websites twocircles.net today at his SC chamber.
"It’s absolutely clear from the post-mortem report that the police’s story about the encounter is totally false. It is obvious from three things. First, the wounds on the body of Atif Ameen show burning and tattooing marks around some of the gunshot wounds which show that at least those bullets had been fired from very close range – at the range of not more than six inches. This is completely different from the police version of the encounter where they said these people were at the other side of the room and from where they were firing etc", he said.
"Secondly, he added, "There are marks showing there are multiple blunt injuries, abrasions on their body, which were prior to the shooting. This clearly indicates that these boys had been dragged across the floor, beaten up or tortured before they were shot."
"And third". he said, "The wounds on Mohd Sajid’s body show that there are four bullet holes on top of his head. This can hardly happen in an encounter."
"Apart from that there are some other glaring problems with the police version. They said two of the boys escaped, which is impossible if seven police officers were just outside the flat which has only one exit. All of these officers were armed and yet two escaped, it is unbelievable. Besides, there were another team of six people on the ground floor. How can the two terrorists escape them?", he asked.
The infamous Batla House encounter is making the headlines once again after the pos-mortem reports of the two Azamgarh youths killed appeared in the press.
He also said that he would consider if a fresh or review petition needs to be filed in the Batla case.
"We will seriously consider whether a fresh petition needs to be filed or whether a review petition needs to be filed in the matter. We will take a decision". he said.
