The Supreme Court today rejected a plea that questioned the appointment of retired Supreme Court judge, Justice B.S. Chauhan, as head of the 3-member commission constituted to probe into the encounter killing of gangster Vikas Dubey.
A plea has been filed in SC seeking issuance of specific directions in custodial killing/ encounter of accused Rakesh Pandey yesterday and for the registration of FIR under Sections 302, 201, 120-B, 193 of the Indian Penal Code against the police officials involved in custodial killing/alleged encounter.
The Uttar Pradesh Police’s Special Task Force (STF) has made clear its special task. Encounter killings. This has been happening for a while, though it has gained notoriety and profile in the recent past, with the killing of another gangster, Vikas Dubey.
