Three out of the 17 police encounters that took place in Gujarat from 2002 to 2006 were fake, a committee set up to investigate these cases has told the Supreme Court. The committee headed by Justice HS Bedi also recommended action against nine police officers who were found to be involved in three custodial killings in these alleged fake encounters.In the final 229-page report submitted to the Supreme Court, the committee said it had "prima facie evidence of custodial killings" of three persons -- Sameer Khan, Kasam Jafar and Haji Haji Ismail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The committee, however, has not recommended prosecution of any IPS officer in these cases.The court had appointed Justice Bedi, a former Supreme Court judge, as chairman of the monitoring committee probing 17 encounter cases from 2002 to 2006 in Gujarat and the panel had submitted its report to the top court in a sealed cover in February last year.On January 9, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had rejected the Gujarat government''s plea to maintain confidentiality of the final report of committee and ordered that it be given to petitioners, including poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar.
