Accusing the MP government of using police for fulfilling the RSS agenda, BSP supremo Mayawati on Tuesday demanded a judicial probe into the encounter of eight prisoners associated with banned organisation SIMI. She also charged that police is misused for political and communal motives in BJP-ruled states.

“Eight prisoners related to SIMI were unarmed. They could have been arrested easily again but no attempts were made in this regard. Prima facie this matter appears suspicious and justice demands judicial probe into the entire incident of encounter,” she said in a statement.

“Its visible that police is misused for political and communal motives in BJP ruled states. Police had saved Vyapam scam, which had taken many lives, accused in MP. Only after SC intervention the matter was handed over to the CBI. MP government is using police for fulfilling RSS agenda”, she charged.

BJP government should not avoid instituting judicial probe as many parties and organisations have raised their on the encounter.

Eight SIMI activists were on Monday killed in an alleged encounter with police on the outskirts of Bhopal hours after they escaped from the high-security Bhopal Central Jail killing a security guard.

      Anti-nationals demanding probe for the encounter of terrorists was expected. Soon these anti-nationals will ask for probe for every terrorist that is killed on the border as all are usually muslims and they are vote banks for these anti-nationals

          It seems that Govt. is trying to ignite hawkish nationalistic majoritarian fury by some paid media and enough chest thumping by the sycophants of their GURUKUL , in both deep inside of our country and as well as in the border. Their main game plan is to consolidate majoritarian hawkish forces before state elections. More opposition voices will have raised against these type of POLICE STATE , more they hope to consolidate their majoritarian outfit which will pay a much dividend in coming elections.
