On Monday, a Delhi court discharged Abdul Rehman, the caretaker of the Batla House flat where the two suspected terrorists, who were allegedly involved in Delhi serial blasts were killed in an encounter in 2008. Rehman, who was accused of sheltering alleged terror activities was discharged by additional session Judge Raj Kumar Tripathi.
As per reports, Rehman was arrested on September 21, 2008, on charges of fabricating lease for the flat in Batla House area. Khan argued in court that police has not recovered the original lease deed that was said to be forged, which was a crucial evidence in the case.
“In the FIR, the complainant has also admitted that he had handed over the keys to the applicant to let out the flat on rental basis to a good tenant. Once the keys were handed over what was the reason for him to forge rent agreement,” Defense Counsel M S Khan argues who fought the case for Rehman.
