New Delhi, Sep 6 (TIWN) Two persons named in the case of fatal shooting of Delhi Police Head Constable Rattan Lal during the February riots here have been declared Proclaimed Offenders by a city court for intentionally avoiding trial proceedings.

The court has also taken cognisance of the charge sheet filed by the Delhi Police in the case.  "... there is sufficient material on record to take cognisance of the offences alleged to have been committed by the accused persons," the court said.  The court noted that though it was inclined to take cognisance of the offence under Section 153-A of the IPC, previous sanction as provided under Section 196 of the CrPC was mandatory but not filed by the prosecuting agency.  The Investigating Officer told the court that a letter dated July 13 was sent to the competent authority but it was not clear how much time it will take for the sanction.
