SC issues notice to UP govt over fake encounters


Supreme Court today sought a response from the Uttar Pradesh government on a plea alleging that several fake encounters have taken place in the state in recent past. The Court issued notice to the government on the PIL filed by an NGO.

The Lawyer appearing for the NGO, alleged that as many as 500 encounters have been carried out in Uttar Pradesh recently, in which a total of 58 persons have been killed.

The bench did not accept the plea that the National Human Rights Commission, which had earlier issued notice to the state government on the issue, be also made a party in the present proceeding.
