Asif Mohammed Khan, an MLA from Okhla constituency, barged into the press conference at Delhi Secretariat and started shouting slogans against AAP after Kejriwal, in reply to a question, said that Delhi Government would not form an SIT to investigate the encounter. He also called the Delhi CM liar.

The Congress MLA said that though Kejriwal had earlier promised to look into the case, he has backtracked from his stand.

"He (Kejriwal) had promised the people of Okhla that he will probe the Batla House encounter case, and had even distributed handbills saying the same," said Khan.

Earlier, Kejriwal said that a court has already given its verdict in the case and government respected the judicial process.
"A court has already given its verdict in the case and we respect the court order. We are not appointing any SIT into the case," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
Almost immediately after Kejriwal's remark, Khan barged into the venue of the press conference and started shouting slogans. The Chief Minister's security tried to stop Khan but he kept shouting.
Delhi Government had on Wednesday decided on a probe by an SIT into the 1984 anti-Sikh riots here, two days after Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said that some of the partymen were probably involved in the violence.
The Okhla MLA said that he will not extend support to the AAP government in any legislative business and does not care if Congress takes disciplinary action against him.
Last year, a trial court had convicted suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorist Shahzad Ahmed in the Batla House encounter case and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
