Bhopal fake encounter: Jamiat Ulama challenges Commission’s report in SC

Mumbai: Challenging the report of a 1-member Commission probing the fake encounter case of 8 Muslim youth encountered in the outskirt of Bhopal, Jamiat Ulama filed a criminal writ petition in the Supreme Court.

In a 17-page report, the commission not only justified the police action but also said that as per sections 41 and 42 of criminal procedure code the police action cannot be objected.

Secretary Jamiat Ulama Maharashtra legal aid committee Gulzar Azmi told this. He also said, the criminal writ petition has been filed by Mohammed Jaleel Khilji, which was prepared by advocate Sarim Naved and advocate Astha Shah. Highlighting the loopholes in the commission report the petition requested the Supreme Court to conduct a probe into the encounter through Special Investigation and the court itself monitor the probe.
