A day after eight SIMI activists were killed in an alleged police encounter following a daring prison break here, their families have decided to approach the Madhya Pradesh High Court seeking a CBI probe into what they dubbed as “cold-blooded murders”. “The families of the deceased have come to me and are weeping inconsolably for justice. We are going to move the MP High Court for a CBI probe into the entire incident,” lawyer Parvez Alam said.

“It is surprising that the authorities are claiming that the accused climbed the 32 feet boundary wall of the jail. Is this possible?” he asked. Police has claimed that the accused from the banned outfit were on Monday killed in an encounter hours after they escaped from the high-security Central jail where they had slit the throat of a security guard and scaled the wall using bedsheets between 2 AM and 3 AM.

Alam described the encounter as “fake” and said, “The TV grabs show police and ATS firing. There is no evidence that the accused fired.” “This is a fake encounter and (these are) cold blooded murders,” Alam claimed. He said Inspector General Yogesh Choudhary had last night told media that the accused made keys to open their lock up with tooth brushes.

“Can someone open the keys of high security Bhopal Central Jail that has earned an ISO certificate with keys made of tooth brushes,” he wondered. “What lie these authorities are speaking,” he said. “Our first course of action after the funeral of the
accused killed in the encounter is to move the HC for justice,” he added.

The kin of the seven accused have already reached Bhopal to receive their bodies and take them to their place for burial, Alam said. He said that no one has yet claimed the body of Mohammad Khalid, a resident of Solapur in Maharashtra. Family members of accused Sheikh Mujeeb are taking his body to Ahmedabad, while Abdul Majid’s mortal remains are being taken to Mahidpur area in Ujjain district of MP, he said.

Bodies of the rest–Amjad Khan, Zakir Hussain, Mohammad Salik, Sheikh Mehboob and Aqueel Khilji– all hailing from MP’s Khandwa district are being taken to their homes, Alam added.

    Now we need to take licence for buying spoon, plate, toothbrush as they seems to be dangerous weapon. They have been killed but come with good explanation rather than all jokes.

    Action must be taken against policeman as well political authorities if it is fake encounter. If given clean cheat, they will do encounter of anyone and plant a story saying that they were attacked by pen or pencil.

    Terrorists are Terrorists. They should be killed in encounter, whether fake or Genuine. In the name of justice, they should not be allowed to play with life of innocent civilians.

    Its good that Police and ATS had grounded all 8 of them.. if this is a staging, I like to see such staging again and again to kill other terrorist in jail.. wasting tax payer money for trail, and keeping them alive in jail is not worth...

    I dnt understand few thingslt;br/gt;1. if they had guns with them then y didn't they kill that constable with it? Ok lets accpt that they got it after killing constable but police find knife from them, then y didn't they kill constable with knife? lt;br/gt;2. How come only one constable was able to stop them where were others?lt;br/gt;3. 25ft wall they crossed it by bed sheets? I mean who was there on the top to hold it on the other end?lt;br/gt;4. If they really had guns then y dnt they stopped the cars on the highway? lt;br/gt;5. Why they were running together?lt;br/gt;6. And in which jail people wear casual dress with sport shoes? lt;br/gt;7. And if they were running on their own legs then how it is possible that police killed them about 7 to 8 km? lt;br/gt;8. If the court decision was in their favour after few weeks then y would they broke the cell?lt;br/gt;9. Now police says they were planning something big.. ok i get it none of the accused were alived then how come they knew about it? If they already knew about it then how come they dnt knw about their escaping plans? lt;br/gt;10. And now there are different different statements from the ig police locals and HM? lt;br/gt;N now the bhakts will troll me for taking there sides! So i will answer it before ur questions m not taking their side m criticising jails authorities ig and HM!

    one can understand the sadness and mental agony of the families of SIMI boys who were killed by the police. these families failed in their duty to guide them properly in their lives. when they joined SIMI, where were these family members? they shuld have advised them no to indulge in politics and instead study. THEY FAILED IN THEIR DUTY AND NOW HAVE LOST THEIR SONS WHO HAVE BECOME ANTI-SOCIAL ELEMENTS. these boys are highly motivated to kill nonMuslims. will Mulims keep mum if a Hindu kills them/but uxlims think they can kill others and they will keep quirt. aaSO SORRY. THOSE DAYS ARE OVER. IF ONE MUSLIM KILLS A NONMUSLIM, 100 MUSLIMS WILL BE KILLED IN RETALIATION. TRUMP IS COMING TO
