The family of Delhi Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who was killed in the Jamia Nagar encounter in New Delhi, on Monday reacted sharply to Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh's raising questions over his death and said they will not accept the money he had announced to give.

The Inspector's father Narottam Sharma said he was "sad" at the comments made by Singh that he had been shifted out of Special Cell before the encounter on September 19. "He is talking rubbish," the senior Sharma said when asked about Singh's claims.

"My son was not transfered from Special Cell. Who told him? How can a leader like him can say such things?", he said. Singh has raised questions over the genuineness of the encounter in which Sharma and two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists were killed.

The Samajwadi Party leader even went to the extent of suspecting that the Inspector could have been killed by policemen themselves.

Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat also said Sharma was not transfered from the Special Cell, the elite anti-terror wing of Delhi Police. On the announcement by Singh that he would give Rs ten lakh to Sharma's family, the Inspector's father said they will not accept it.

Meanwhile, a group of people protested outside Singh's Lodhi Estate residence here and shouted slogans against the Samajwadi Party leader for his comments on Sharma.
