[edit] Career
Sharma served the Delhi police for 19 years.[2] He joined Delhi Police as a sub-inspector in 1989 and was instrumental in the killing of 35 alleged terrorists and the arrest of another 80 alleged militants, according to an authorised Delhi police statemnt. The police statement also claimed that had killed 40 alleged gangsters from outside Delhi and arrested another 129. He died on 19 September 2008 after sustaining injuries during an encounter with puported terrorists allegedly involved in the 13 September 2008 Delhi bombings.[3]

He was conferred seven gallantry medals, including President’s Police Medal for Gallantry in 2003 and 2007 and Police Medals for Gallantry in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005. He also received 150 rewards for exemplary performance. Like many Indian encounter specialists (encounter is the term commonly used in south asia for extra-judicial killings), Sharma's career was controversial. Sharma often cribbed that his one time boss, best friend and mentor Rajbir Singh alone got all the credit for their operations, but death perhaps has restored the balance.[4] Rajbir Singh was killed at point blank range, apparently by a businessman contact.

[edit] Death
Sharma who led the encounter at Jamia Nagar where the alleged terrorists linked with the 2008 Delhi blasts were hiding, received bullet injuries to his abdomen, thighs and right arm. According to the autopsy performed at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences he died of excessive bleeding. Sharma was not wearing bullet proof armour.

[edit] Legacy
He is noted for his involvement in high-profile cases that include the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, 2000 terrorist attack on Red Fort and 29 October 2005 Delhi bombings. Sharma was instrumental in arrest of four Jaish-e-Mohammad alleged militants in February 2007 after an encounter at DDU Marg, Delhi. He was also involved in an encounter which saw the death of one of the most wanted terrorists, Abu Hamza, at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in 2006 after the Diwali blasts.

[edit] Tribute
The Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh said that Sharma had shown exceptional courage and was an inspiration for the security forces. "He has shown exceptional courage and is an inspiration for our security forces," he stated.[5] Ina letter to Sharma's wife on his death, Singh wrote: "It is officers like your husband who make us all feel confident that our security is in safe hands. Your husband’s passing away is a great loss for our country and society."

President Pratibha Patil said his was a supreme act of sacrifice, courage and bravery and he would be always remembered by the nation.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi in a condolence message said that Sharma battled with the terrorists valiantly and sacrificed his life in the service of the country. "Our battle against terrorism will continue with full resolve," she said.[6]

"We will do whatever we can to pay homage to him on behalf of the entire country," said Home Minister Shivraj Patil.[7] "Mohan Chand has been one of our most brave officers. He won many gallantry awards," said Police Commissioner YS Dadhwal.[8]

We don't want Amar's money: Mohan Chand Sharma family

We don't want Amar's money: Mohan Chand Sharma family

NEW DELHI: Hurt by the "insensitive" remarks of Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh questioning the Jamia Nagar encounter, the family of Inspector Moha
n Chand Sharma has refused to accept the Rs 10 lakh cheque that Singh had sent them after the police officer died in the operation.

"His comments have hurt our honour and disrespected my late husband. We did not go begging to Singh and we will not accept the cheque now that he has publicly said that he gave us money — as if I am making my husband's death an excuse to earn money," said an angry Maya Sharma, widow of the officer.

Singh had expressed doubts over the genuineness of the encounter and went to the extent of saying the Sharma could have been killed by his colleagues.

Interestingly, the cheque that was handed out to the family had an error in it. "In numbers, the amount mentioned on the cheque was Rs 10,000, while Rs 10 lakh was written in words. When we brought this to Singh's representative's notice, he asked us to add two zeros to the cheque on our own. She added that I told him that such things are not befitting of respectable people like us. I thought it was an honest mistake. So, after we insisted, his representative took the cheque back for correction. Now, we don't want it back," said Maya.

She added that her entire family was so upset by Singh's statements that they were not even willing to let him enter the premises of their society. "This is all just a political gimmick to attract votes. We will not allow our family's honour and my husband's sacrifice to be trivialized this way. Singh is heading a political party and yet speaks like an uneducated man and forget about an apology, we want nothing to do with him anymore," she said.

Maya was most unhappy about two comments that Singh made. "He said that my husband was a martyr indeed, but no one knew whether he was killed by the terrorists or the police themselves. Then Singh said that he was removed from his position in the special cell. Did he mean that he was fired from his job or did he know he was transferred and still went there to die leaving behind his family and his ailing son? Did Singh see his fellow cops shooting him dead?" she asked.

Maya said Singh had made a mockery of her husband's death when the entire nation recognizes it as a supreme sacrifice in the service of the country. "When we, being his family, don't know about his supposed transfer, how does Singh know? Was he closer to him than us? He has insulted my deceased husband and our self respect besides opening up our wounds again by these irresponsible statements," she said.

Sharma's father, Narottam, also expressed his pain over the remarks. "I am deeply saddened by the comments made by Singh. My son sacrificed his life for the nation and with his 'generous' gesture, he was trying to serve his political motives and aspirations. We have refused to accept the money given by Singh as I will not allow politicians to make a mockery of my son's death," he said.

A senior city lawyer expressed shock over Singh's statement and said that Sharma was in the investigating officer in Singh's phone tapping case. "Singh trusted him and his department enough to let them handle the case and yet, now he is accusing them of killing Sharma. Under section 449 of the Indian Penal Code, it is an offence to make defamatory statements against a dead person punishable by two years. How can he just so casually say such things?" he said.

Meanwhile, Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit visited the Sharma residence in Dwarka on Monday morning and assured the family of complete support from the government.

Delhi Police PRO, ACP Rajan Bhagat, confirmed that Sharma was not being transferred out of the special cell at the time of his death. Irate supporters of Sharma gathered outside Singh's residence at Lodhi Colony shouting slogans against him on Monday for making such statements.

Singh had made the comments while on a visit to Jamia Nagar where

2008 में बाटला हाउस मुठभेड़ में शहीद उत्तराखंड मूल के शहीद इंस्पेक्टर मोहन चंद शर्मा के केस आज न्याय आने की उम्मीद।

आशा है इस अमर वीर सपूत को न्याय मिलेगा और अपराधी को सख्त से सख्त सजा।
