HC no­tice to CBI on U’khand en­counter


The Delhi high court on Mon­day sought re­sponse from the CBI on the pleas of 14 sus­pended Ut­tarak­hand po­lice­men, who had ap­proached the court chal­leng­ing their con­vic­tion and life im­pris­on­ment for killing a 22- year- old MBA stu­dent in a fake en­counter in Dehra Dun in 2009.

On June 9, the trial court had awarded life im­pris­on­ment to 17 Ut­tarak­hand po­lice­men for the mur­der of Ran­bir Singh, a res­i­dent of Ghazi­abad on July 3, 2009. One of the tainted cops Jas­pal Singh Gosain had got ac­quit­tal from the charges of mur­der and con­spir­acy, but was con­victed for fal­si­fy­ing records.
