‘I never forget my son’s martyrdom’

After the judgment in the 2008 Batla House encounter killing, late Delhi police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma’s family expressed satisfactions with the decision made by the Saket Court. The verdict comes five years after the incident. The family is now awaiting the final judgment, that is supposed to be announced on 28 July.

'I am happy with the decision, but I will be more happy after the final judgment is announced. But this is the verdict of the trial court. I am afraid of what will be the decision of the higher court, if the accused move high court,' said Naurottam Sharma, the slain inspector’s father.
Mohan Chand’s 76-year-old mother, Devinder Devi said, 'I don't know who killed my son. But I never forget his martyrdom,' Devi added.

Mohan Chand’s wife, Maya Sharma, said the judgment has proved that it was not a fake encounter as claimed by certain politicians.
‘Now it has been proved by the court that it was not a fake encounter and that martyrdom of my husband was genuine.

‘The encounter was questioned by the political parties for their own benefit as it had happened during the election year,’ she said, adding that the controversy surrounding the case, ‘was very painful for me.
‘He was performing his duty leaving behind his unwell son on that fateful day and sacrificed his life.’
