Around three months after the encounter took place and several loopholes in police theory about the encounter and the suspected terrorists were exposed by media and human rights activists, the parents came to the National capital from Azamgarh’s Sanjarpur and Sarai Meer villages, and filed the complaint with the local police. They have also sent the copy of their application to DCP, South Delhi, Ajay Chuadhry, Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dodwal, Lt. Governor, Delhi, Tajender Khanna and Home Minister P Chidambaram. The parents have warned, according to a report in Urdu daily Rashtriya Sahara, to go to court if the police did not register the FIR.

In the 2-page application, Atif’s father said his son had come to Delhi for higher education and he was not attached with any religious or political organization. He has demanded the police to take action against the killers of his son.

In a separate application, Sajid’s father said his son had come here for computer education. He had submitted his documents with the local police for rent verification and the police had cleared his application.

The parents of the two youths also visited the Hazrat Nizamuddin graveyard and prayed for them.
