New Delhi, December 7
A day after the Telangana Police killed four men accused of rape and murder of a veterinary doctor in Hyderabad, two PILs were filed in the Supreme Court on Saturday seeking an independent probe into the alleged fake encounter.
While the first petition has been filed by GS Mani and Pradeep Kumar Yadav, the second one is by advocate ML Sharma. The petitioners demanded registration of an FIR against the police personnel who killed the four accused.
The petitions are likely to be mentioned before a Bench headed by the CJI on Monday for urgent hearing.
The petitioners made the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, Chief Secretary and Director General of Police of Telangana, Commissioner of Cyberabad Police as respondents. They demanded that the police officials involved in the encounter killing should be probed by the CBI or an SIT.
They submitted that an independent probe agency must be directed to act in accordance with the 16 guidelines laid down by the top court in PUCL vs State of Maharashtra for fake encounter cases.
The Telangana High Court has already taken cognisance of the encounter and directed that post-mortem be video-recorded and the bodies should be preserved till Monday. — TNS
