A court has on Monday convicted Ariz Khan, who’s allegedly connected with the terrorists Indian Mujahideen, for the killing of Delhi police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma and other terrible offenses linked to the 2008 Batla House encounter.
Judge Sandeep Yadav said the evidence that has been provided by the prosecution duly proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt; that the accused is guilty of the offense.
Yadav, furthermore, noted that it was “duly proven that Ariz Khan and his associates caused the murder of a police officer and fired gunshot on the police official.”
The court adjourned and will hear arguments on the quantum of the sentence on March 15. Meanwhile, Inspector Sharma of the Special Cell of Delhi was murdered during the 2008 Batla House encounter in Jamia Nagar in south Delhi.
Meanwhile, a trial court in July 2013 sentenced Indian Mujahideen terrorist Shahzad Ahmed to life imprisonment in connection with the same case. Although he moved to appeal against the judgment, the matter is still pending.
Ariz Khan was on the run and was declared a proclaimed offender. He was arrested on February 14, 2018, and made to face trial at the time.
