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.
