SIMI activists killing: SC notice to Centre on plea for probe

The Supreme Court has sought the response of the Centre and the CBI on a plea seeking a probe into the alleged encounter killings of eight activists of Students of Islamic Movement of India, SIMI, after a prison break in Bhopal.

A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, yesterday, issued notice and asked the Centre, the Madhya Pradesh government and the CBI to reply to the plea which has also sought a court-monitored probe by an independent agency like a SIT or the CBI.

The plea filed by a relative of one of those killed submitted that the Madhya Pradesh High Court had refused to entertain a similar plea. The High Court did not consider the fact that a one-member commission had not permitted the petitioner and other relatives of the undertrial prisoners to participate in the proceedings. The high court had on 21st February dismissed the plea of the petitioners holding that several directions had been passed in other similar petitions.

The eight SIMI activists, who escaped after killing a security guard from the Central Jail in Bhopal, were killed on October 31, 2015 in an alleged police encounter.
