Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday demanded a Supreme Court-monitored investigation into the alleged encounter killing of eight SIMI activists in Bhopal. “This is very serious. We demand an SC monitored investigation,” he said on twitter.

Eight SIMI activists were killed in an alleged encounter with police in Bhopal hours after they escaped from the high-security Bhopal Central Jail killing a security guard. As a controversy raged over the police action after the daring pre-dawn jailbreak, TV channels showed footage purportedly from the encounter site in which a policeman is seen pumping bullets into a man from close range after some unidentified person takes out what appears to be a knife said to be in a plastic cover and places it back.

The activists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), two of whom were involved in a similar jail- break in Khandwa three years ago, managed to escape around 2-3 AM after killing a jail security guard by scaling the prison wall with the help of bed sheets.

        An inquiry is necessary. Why were all 8 were killed in the encounter - surely a few of them would have surrendered if they couldn't escape the police. If they had just escaped from jail without external help, they would not have had any weapons as they would need money to buy these. How did they get clothing that are not prisoner clothes.
