The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a petition by the Gujarat government, demanding a directive for investigation into alleged fake encounters in all the states in the last 10 years.
The court said that the prayer for mandating a uniform policy in this regard was not tenable and rejected the Narendra Modi government’s demand to constitute a common special task force (STF) for investigating the alleged fake encounters across the country.
The court observed that it was not possible to issue such blanket directions under the constitutional scheme and further pointed out the vehement opposition to such a prayer by various other states.

The Supreme Court had earlier sought the stands of the Centre and all state governments on the Gujarat government’s plea for an independent probe into all the alleged fake encounters in the last 10 years. The Gujarat government had alleged that some vested interest groups were selectively targeting its police force over the encounter deaths.
