A court in Delhi awarded death penalty to Indian Mujahideen’s Ariz Khan for murder of inspector Mohan Chand Sharma and other offences in connection with the 2008 Batla House encounter.

The court calls the case as ‘rarest of rare case’, Live Mint reported.

Earlier, Police sought death penalty for Khan, allegedly associated with the militant outfit Indian Mujahideen, saying it was not just any killing but a murder of a law enforcement officer who was a defender of justice.

Additional Public Prosecutor A T Ansari, appearing for the police, said the case attracts exemplary punishment, which is capital punishment.

Khan’s counsel opposed the death penalty.

The court had said on 8 March that it was “duly proved that Ariz Khan and his associates caused murder of police official and fired gunshot on the police official”.
