The post-mortem report of the eight SIMI terrorists, who were gunned down hours after they escaped from the Bhopal Central Jail earlier on Monday, stated there were multiple entry and exit wounds and that majority of the wounds were above waist. The report added that the clothes of the terrorists have been sent for forensic test.

The SIMI terrorists broke out of the jail after slitting a guard’s throat and were found hours later in a thickly forested area on the outskirts of the city where they were killed in an encounter.

Bhopal Inspector General of Police Yogesh Choudhary earlier defended the action to open fire on the terrorists, saying they were neutralized in ‘retaliatory’ fire, adding that the suspects have been continuously perpetrating serious offences and also killed police constables in 2008 and 2011.

Choudhary said they had a track record of being involved in serious crimes before.

Following the furore among the political circles demanding a probe to verify the authenticity of the encounter, Madhya Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) Rishi Kumar Shukla yesterday announced the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the killings.

The decision to form the SIT came after the opposition parties demanded an independent high-level judicial probe into the matter.

                The terrorists rights activists - strangely called human rights activists - are now crying foul over the encounter of dreaded terrorists. These "Intellectuals", and "liberals" and Corrupt Editors would remain silent when innocent civilians are killed by terrorists. It will appropriate to call these elements as media terrorists.

                  Sorry Friend, All prominent leaders of Congress and Communists are Brahmin, Be it hi Familiy (Pandit Nehru), Mani Shankar Ayer, Shiela Dixit, Mamta Banerjee, Kerala CM, Prakash Karat etc. BJP is led by OBC. Yes secular parties divide people on the points mentioned by you above.

                    Human rights are for civil human beings, not for proclaimed offenders and murderer's.lt;br/gt;Why so much hue and cry ? Indians love to create controversies, they thrive in them .lt;br/gt;It gives them something for a heated talk or argument, over a cup of Chai !

                      This government does not even have the intelligence to stage manage a fake encounter. Despite all the state machinery and public opinion at their disposal, they manage to mess up. What a sorry lot.

                        If they had exit wounds too, it means that they were shot from close range. So staged encounter confirmed?

                            Those terrorists got the death they deserved. To stop a jail bird escaping, the use of force is very much justified.

                                Why every so called human activists are talking about prisoners who escaped from prison. (Obviously prison is not the place where you find saints). Surprisingly, no one talking about killing of an unarmed policeman who was on duty by this prisoners!!!! lt;br/gt;Are we in support of those killers and probable terrorists?? lt;br/gt;Even if it is fake....they deserve the same treatment which they had done with an unarmed policeman in prison.....

                                    entire episode looks cooked up. few points to note lt;br/gt;1- They were accused, trial was yet to begin. they were not convicted. lt;br/gt;2- they might have been falsely charged sheeted as has happened in several earlier cases. their release from court could have posed obstacle in promotion of the senior officerlt;br/gt;3- similar thing had happened in telangana. only thing were shoot in police van even though their hand were tied. police claimed they were trying snatch weapons.lt;br/gt;4- scaping from high security prison is no childs play. to say they fashioned out keys out of toothbrush and rope from bed sheet is ridiculous.

                                      SIMI men died due to gunshot injuries, wounds mainly above waist, says post-mortem report. The intention was to kill, not to arrest them. We will soon be hearing from international forums about human right violations.

                                        How do you know these guys killed the policeman ? Why is the police reluctant to show proof like toothbrush, wooden stick and plates ?

                                          You have videos showing they were getting shot even after they fell on the ground using an ault rifle. What more evidence does one require....?!

                                            Jews occupied Muslim land and killed thousands of them; in India daily Muslims are killed; in Myanmar buddhists killed hundreds of Rohingyas forcing them to flee to Indonesia and Malaysia; in Middle East its the politics of USA and Iran that is creating chaos.
