Ghaziabad: Three policemen including a sub-inspector have been booked on murder charges for killing two persons from Haryana in an alleged fake encounter six years ago.

Police had claimed that the victims, Soran of village Tigao in Faridabad district and Vijay of Rohtak, were shot dead in an encounter by the three policemen in Babaugarh here on April 29, 2004 as they suspected them to be criminals.

However, a CB-CID inquiry conducted on the direction of the National Human Rights Commission has found that the duo was killed in a fake encounter, Superintendent of Police, Rural, M M Beg, said.

A murder case was registered in Babugarh police station yesterday against the three police men including sub inspector Shri Ram and they will be arrested soon, he said.

Soran's wife Vimlesh had filed a complaint with NHRC which asked up the Uttar Pradesh Government to order an inquiry into the episode.
