NHRC team to question police in Ranbir encounter

A team of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will question police personnel, who were allegedly involved in the Ranbir Singh fake encounter case.

Dehra Dun: A team of National Human Rights
Commission (NHRC) will question police personnel, who were
allegedly involved in the Ranbir Singh fake encounter case.

The NHRC team is likely to question nearly 25-26 police
personnel in connection with the encounter that rocked
Uttarakhand in 2009, police sources said.

The team is coming on a complaint filed by the family
members of Ranbir Singh, an MBA graduate from Ghaziabad, who
was allegedly abducted by the Uttarakhand police at Mohini
Road here and later killed in the fake encounter.

18 police personnel have been charge sheeted in the case by
the CBI.

Meanwhile, a special CBI court has issued non-bailable
warrants against two colleagues of the slain student, Shekhar
Tyagi and Amit Bhatnagar, who did not turn up before it
despite being summoned in the case of looting of a service
revolver of a sub-inspector.

A CBI team would soon go to Meerut and nearby areas to
arrest the duo in this regard.
Police had claimed that Ranbir Singh along with his four
companions, who were riding on a motorcycle, were asked to
stop by Sub-Inspector G D Bhatt at Dalanwala area on July 3
during President Pratibha Patil`s visit.

Instead the youths thrashed Bhatt and fled towards the
Ladpur jungles after looting his service revolver.
When Bhatt flashed a message over the wireless, the youths
were intercepted at Ladpur jungles and there was an encounter
in which Ranbir was killed. But after the autopsy report, the
demand for a CBI probe got louder prompting Chief Minister
Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank to recommended the case for an
inquiry by the investigating agency.
