The Delhi court verdict in the Batla House case on Thursday led to a political war of words, with BJP slamming Congress leaders who had questioned the genuiness of the encounter while the ruling party hit back.
The national capital Delhi was rocked by serial blasts on September 13, 2008. The first bomb exploded at 18:07 pm, and four other blasts followed in succession. At least 30 people killed and over 100 injured.
Nearly five years after the Batla House encounter that killed Delhi Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, a session court on Thursday found the lone accused in the case, Shahzad Ahmad, guilty of killing the brave police officer.
