Asserting that judicial process takes a long time to give justice which gives opportunity to the terrorists and terror organizations to become stronger, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Babulal Gaur on Monday demanded a shoot at sight action against the terrorists. “There is a need to change the law so that the police can shoot the perpetrators directly as they pose danger to the society. The court trials for terrorists should be closed. There should be shoot at sight action for people like these,” Gaur told ANI.

Hailing the valour and bravery of the Madhya Pradesh Police who took prompt action to kill the eight SIMI terrorists, Gaur asked the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government to give bravery medals to the officers. “I hail the valour and bravery of the Madhya Pradesh Police who took prompt action to kill the terrorists. I urge the government to give bravery medals for the police officials who conducted it,” he said.

The eight SIMI terrorists, who were killed had escaped from the Bhopal Central Jail, earlier on Monday morning. The SIMI terrorists escaped from the jail at around 2:00 am after killing a security guard and scaling the prison wall using bedsheets. They were cornered and gunned down 10 km away from the prison in the city outskirts in a joint operation by the city police, counter terrorist group (CTG) and ATS team.

Madhya Pradesh and neighbouring states were put on high alert following the jail break. A number of prison officials were also suspended by the state government. Madhya Pradesh Home minister Bhupendra Singh called the jail break “unfortunate” and suspended five prison officers with immediate effect for negligence in duty

The Union Home Ministry has asked the Madhya Pradesh government to send a detailed report about the jail break.

                    Very very sane suggestion need to be implemented. Off late Indian judicial system become the backbone of terror organisation.The court system delay. amounts to killing of innocent people for no fault of them.

                        TERRORIST have to be shot at sight and liquidated to save the lives of common man/ innocent civiliants –both Hindus and Muslims. There is no point in arresting them, put them in jail and serve them mutton biriyani and goat leg soup everyday and WASTE TAX PAYERS’ MONEY. They will come out one day and start killing innocent people. That is what is happening now.

                              They were terrorist or not, yet not clear coz they were under court trail, but media, police, politicians declared terrorist coz they were muslim, then what is the use of judiciary and law in india. Better kill all muslims. And prevail so called peace in India.

                                      Though shoot at sight appears to be outrageous, the fancy comments by the cheap politicians which follows very genuine cases of action by the security agencies needs to be banned . Security forces get demoralized and confused after each of such life threatening actions by them, as such encounters are, as the terrorists are very very dangerous .

                                          Shoot at sight orders must be enforced in Parliament and State Legislatures first, then in all court's and collectorates, these are terror havens next best to stan, it is corruption and politics of every kind that is breeding terrorism
