Singh has earlier asked the Modi government to order a judicial probe into the 2008 encounter at Batla House in Delhi in which two suspected terrorists and a police officer were killed.
“Batla House encounter was fake. I dare the BJP to go for a judicial probe. I still stand by my remarks on the encounter. I don’t know who is Bada Sajid or Chhota Sajid,” Singh had said.
The encounter, which happened during UPA’s regime, recently got into news amid a claim by an alleged ISIS operative that he had fled Batla House right before the police raided it.
