The encounter, which had taken place during the former UPA regime, recently came into news amid a claim by an alleged ISIS operative that he had fled Batla House right before the police raided it.Former union home minister Shivraj Patil on Wednesday reaffirmed that the 2008 Batla House encounter was genuine and asked Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh to prove his claim on the same.
“I had told at that time that on the basis of information received from the police and taking into consideration all facts, according to me it was a genuine encounter. I cannot change my stand on a daily basis,” Patil told ANI.
“If someone says something otherwise then it’s his responsibility to prove it. If he is saying that it was a fake encounter then he should prove it,” he added.
