    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.

    This would be very sad if true, but also not wholly unexpected. It is merely another reminder that India an aspiring "power" lacks even the most basic law and order mechanisms required of a self respecting democratic society in the 21st century. There have been lots of calls to address this issue but nothing has come off it yet and what its establishment does in the near future remains to be seen.

    Again, if this story is true, my heart goes out to the innocent man and his loved ones.

    I think people of India and victims should set up a large fake encounter and gun down every policeman. Then raise a new force.

    If this turns out to be true, these 'policemen' as well as those who gave them their orders should be given death sentences. These 'encounters' are usually supported by the public when criminals and terrorists are involved, but corruption has run so rampant that the police often murder anyone they want to get rid of or simply don't like. Just as the police are awarded when they finish off dreaded criminals in an "encounter", they should be given exemplary punishment nothing short of death sentences when they kill innocents. That is the only way to bring accountability into the system.

    MP probes if Kargil hero was named dacoit, killed

    MP probes if Kargil hero was named dacoit, killed | The Asian Age

    Bhopal, Aug 28: Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission on Saturday took suo motu cognisance of newspaper reports and decided to probe the death of a Kargil war soldier who was killed along with three others in an alleged police encounter in the Baknasa ravines of Bhind district on August 22.

    The State Human Rights Commission has asked police officers working with the Commission to investigate the alleged encounter and submit a report.

    Amjad Khan, who served the Indian Army for 10 years and had fought in the Kargil war in 1999, was declared a dacoit and the Bhind district Police are claiming to have gunned him down in an encounter.

    Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly, Chaudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi and Congress MLA from Lahar constituency in Bhind district Govind Singh have demanded a CBI probe into the matter.

    They alleged that the Bhind Police, led by the district superintendent of Police Chanchal Shekhar, have killed four persons in a fake encounter for gallantry medals. Mr Govind Singh said that Amjad was not a dacoit but an active Congress worker.

    Amjad’s wife, Yasmin has alleged that her husband was picked up from home and killed by the police.

    Addressing mediapersons at the State Congress headquarters here, she said that Amjad was not wearing a khaki uniform when he left home but was found wearing a khaki dress after the “so called” encounter.

    The Bhind district police earlier claimed that four members of dacoit Ranju Banjara gang were killed in an encounter in the ravines near Baknasa village on August 22.

    What a disgrace...killing people who fought for country in cold blood for promotion.

    If true then people involved should be hanged.
