Asaduddin Owaisi demands SC probe into SIMI activists’ encounter

"People who have run away from prison after assassinating a guard and they only have spoons. So, to any normal person, this theory is unbelievable," he told reporters in Hyderabad.

Alleging “discrepancies” in the official version on the escape of SIMI activists from a Bhopal jail and their killing in a subsequent encounter with police, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday demanded an inquiry by Supreme Court to bring out “all facts”.

WATCH:

“There is huge discrepancy in what the Home Minister and the police officials are saying. The Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh says that these undertrials were armed with spoons. If they were armed with spoons, the Madhya Pradesh ATS could have easily overpowered them, because ATS has all sophistacated weapons. They could have easily arrested them. But, people who have run away from prison after assassinating a guard and they only have spoons. So, to any normal person, this theory is unbelievable,” he told reporters in Hyderabad. A probe by Supreme Court would bring out all the facts and any attempts to supress them, the Hyderabad MP said.

“I feel that an inquiry by Supreme Court would unravel all the weaknesses and any steps which have been taken not to bring the whole facts out of it,” he said. He wondered how those killed in the encounter were wearing wrist watches, shoes and belts as undertrials are not allowed to keep these things. The investigation would bring out facts with regard to how the men escaped from the high security jail, the encounter, and how come they were wearing wrist watches, Owaisi said.

Contending that encounter killings would not help the cause of justice, he took exception to death of undertrials in judicial custody in any case.

        All who says they escaped from the jail.... just give answers of these questions...........: How did 8 accused emble in one cell at the same time before jail break? This is against SoP of the jail. 2: How come they were out of cell? According to jail manual they must be in lockup and keys should be submitted to Jail office before sunset. 3 : How come only one policeman was attacked and no one else tried to stop them when they were attacked? 4: How is that all accused were moving around together? Even stupidest of criminals won’t do that. 5: Where they not spotted on CC TV when they were killing the guard and crossing the high security wall? 6: Where they got arms and desi pistol? 7: All of the accused were well dressed wearing sports shoes and even watches, where they purchased all theses stuff at mid night in the deserted wood? 8- Why not even one of them has been taken alive so that co-conspirators if any could be unmasked with evidence?
