IN THE alleged fake encounter case of Sandeep Gadoli, a judicial probe will be conducted by the Metropolitan Magistrate court to probe the death of the Haryana-based gangster in a Mumbai hotel on February 7.
Gadoli’s family had approached the court in May seeking an inquiry under Section 176 (1-a) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) as is mandatory as per the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in cases of a person’s death while in the custody of the police.

On Friday, the court ordered an inquiry into the case under the CrPC provisions.
“The operative order is a welcome relief to the family. Now, with a judicial inquiry in the case, most lacuna in the investigation by the Special Investigation Team of the Mumbai police will be exposed,” said Tanveer Nizam, advocate representing the Gadoli family.
With this inquiry, the investigating officer will also have to deposit all the case material, including the statements of witnesses, CCTV and audio footage, into the court, added Nizam.
The Gadoli family has alleged that the investigators have deliberately left out a few names, including those of senior Gurgaon police officials, who were part of the alleged encounter. They further called the encounter a conspiracy planned at the behest of a rival gang member.
Another application filed by the family urging the magistrate to monitor the SIT probe pointing out 30 loopholes in the investigation, is pending. The SIT had submitted its chargesheet in the Gadoli case on Thursday naming six accused, including four Gurgaon police officials who traveled from Haryana to Mumbai to carry out the encounter.
