Bhopal: A Congress leader has alleged that her husband Amjad Khan, a former Armyman who had fought in the Kargil conflict, was killed by Madhya Pradesh Police in an alleged fake encounter for medals and promotions.

"My husband was killed in cold blood by the Bhind Police to get medals and promotions," Yasmin Khan said at a press conference in presence of Congress leaders at party's office here Friday evening.

She is Lahar block unit Congress president in Bhind district.

Appealing for justice, she said when Amjad left home with policemen, he was in plainclothes but after the alleged encounter, khaki dress was found on his body.

Amjad, who was shot dead for being a "dacoit", was in the Army for 10 years and had taken part in the 1999 Kargil war before becoming a social worker. He was an active Youth Congress leader of Bhind district, Yasmin said.

His family members said they were told by the visiting police team that they (Amjad and other three youths) were being taken for questioning in some case.

All four were killed in an encounter with the police in the ravines of Bhind district on August 22. Police had claimed that they were "dacoits".

The other three were Raju Banjara of Jalaun district, Uttar Pradesh, Udal Barhai of Datia district and Ravindra Udonia, a resident of Bhind district.
