New Delhi, Oct 16 (IANS) Contrary to some media reports, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Thursday confirmed it had not yet received any report from Delhi Police on the Jamia Nagar shootout in which two suspected terrorists were killed last month.”There were some media reports that Delhi Police have submitted the report on the Jamia Nagar shootout to NHRC, after it issued them a notice. We want to make it clear that the commission has not yet received any such report. Only after getting it, the commission will take a view on the matter and decide further action,” an NHRC official told IANS.

The NHRC had issued a notice to Delhi Police Commissioner Y.S. Dadwal to submit a report on the Sep 19 shootout, after an NGO, Real Cause, said the incident could have been “fabricated”.

Two alleged terrorists, suspected to be involved in the serial bombings here Sep 13, were killed during the shootout at the Batla House in Jamia Nagar of south Delhi. While two others escaped, one was arrested.

Delhi Police inspector M.C. Sharma lost his life in the shootout.

NHRC had issued notice Sep 24 and given the police two weeks to submit its report.
