MP police killed Kargil jawan in fake encounter, alleges wife - Hindustan Times A Congress leader has alleged that her husband, a former armyman who had fought in the Kargil war, was killed by Madhya Pradesh police in a fake encounter. "My husband was killed in cold blood by the Bhind police to get medals and promotions," Yasmin Khan, block unit Congress chief in Bhind district, said told reporters here. Amjad, who was shot dead for being a "dacoit", was in the Army for 10 years and had fought the 1999 Kargil war before becoming a social worker. He was an active Youth Congress leader of the district, she said yesterday. A police team visited their home and told Khan's family that they (Amjad and three youths) were being taken for questioning in some case. All four were killed in an encounter with police in the ravines of Bhind district on August 22. Police had claimed that they were "dacoits", she added. Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi and Congress leader Govind Singh also alleged that the police team led by SP Chanchal Sekhar killed the party worker in a staged shootout. They demanded a CBI probe into the incident. "There was no criminal record against Amjad. In an attempt to get medals, the Bhind police hatched a conspiracy and killed the four persons, including Amjad," Chaturvedi said. The Congress leaders demanded registration of a murder case against the SP and other policemen involved in the "encounter". --------------- I don't understand why the "Congress leader" part has to be highlighted, the act itself is as horrendous and criminal as can be. It is just incomprehensible that these fake encounters continue to happen.
