The NHRC, which had conducted inquiry in the case on the direction of the Delhi High Court, said in its report that there has been no violation of human rights by actions of police in which two alleged terrorists were gunned down on September 19, 2008.

"We are clearly of the opinion that having regard to the material placed before us, it cannot be said that there has been any violation of human rights by action of police," the Commission said in its 30-page report submitted in a sealed envelope to the High Court.
