    All the Videos clearly shows they want to surrender. But the police killed them deliberately. MP ATS Chief has also said that they have no arms with them to attack the police. No doubt this is a fake encounter and murder to arouse the people's feeling in the name of nationalism vs terrorism. The govt thinks public are fools. But the Truth will only prevail.

      All supporters of terrorists who protest against the encounter if terrorists should be booked under TADA and face supporting of terrorism charges. Clean India of these terrorist apologists

        Human rights for terrorists?TMMK is a hardcore terrorist organization masquerading as a political party in Tamilnadu. As long as we have people like Karuna here these vermins will always be free to do whatever they want

          Have these people protested when two of these SIMI activists killed a unsuspecting innocent girl in Chennai Train bomb two years ago. These people should be hanged first.
