The CBI Saturday demanded the death sentence for seven of the 18 Uttarakhand policemen, who were convicted in the 2009 fake encounter killing of MBA student Ranbir Singh, 22, in Dehradun.

During arguments on the quantum on sentence in a Delhi court, public prosecutor Brajesh Kumar Shukla argued the encounter falls under the ‘rarest of rare’ category and the policemen ‘pre-planned’ the murder and behaved in a ‘predatory manner’.

“In a case where fake encounter is proved, the situation is of rarest of rare and the death penalty should be awarded,” he said. “If protectors of law commit crime they deserve harsher punishment.”
