Two cops booked in encounter case
JAMSHEDPUR: Apparently under pressure from the newly-elected Ajay Kumar, the police lodged an FIR against two of its men among others on the complaint of Ramanuj Singh, father of slain Nilesh Singh.
Nilesh (24), auto driver and resident of Daigutu, Mango, was killed in a police encounter at Bhuyandih bus terminus under Sitaramdera police station area on Tuesday. Deeply shocked over the killing of his only son, Ramanuj and other members of the family had demanded an inquiry into the matter as they claimed that the deceased was innocent. "An FIR has been lodged and we are ready for the postmortem," said the inconsolable Ramanuj on Thursday, following his visit to the DC's office where he sought an impartial inquiry into the matter.
Ramanuj has also asked for penal action against the accused police officers. Local MP Kumar had urged the aggrieved family, before leaving for Delhi on Wednesday, not to receive the body until and unless an FIR against the accused police officers is lodged.
The FIR with the Sitaramdera police station has been lodged against Jugsalai police station OC Vijay Kumar Singh, Sidhgora police station OC Vinay Kumar Singh, entrepreneur Upender Singh, his son Bunty Singh and nephew Bintu, among others.
The police on Tuesday eliminated three alleged criminals, who had come to kill trader Upender Singh at his Yarana bar located on the campus of bus depot. Police killed Vikas Ojha, a resident of Nandnagar Bhuiyandih and Gudu Singh, 26, a resident of Bihar, Ara district along with Nilesh Singh.
According to the police, Nilesh and Vikas were close aides of Gudu Singh, a notorious criminal and were henchmen of dreaded gangster Akhilesh Singh. However, Nilesh's family argued that their son had no criminal antecedents and was innocent, who got trapped at the site accidentally.
The SSP, however, said a magisterial inquiry into the matter was on.
Sir, on behalf of PVCHR, I request you to look into the matter. There is need to find out whether the guidelines in extra judicial killing has been adhered to by the police. The family members must be given compensation at the earliest.
