NEW DELHI: The CBI today filed a charge sheet in a special court against seven personnel of the Manipur Police in connection with an alleged fake encounter six years ago, officials said today.
This is the third charge sheet in 41 alleged fake encounter cases handed over by the Supreme Court to the CBI last year.
The agency has charged six policemen with criminal conspiracy and murder, while another personnel has been charged with destruction of evidence, they said.
The findings of the agency are based on forensic opinion, field investigation, expert opinion of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, post-mortem report, they said.
The agency also elicited opinion of doctors from AIIIMS and collected a huge volume of records during the investigation into the encounter of Zamir Khan on January 20, 2012, the officials said.
The alleged extrajudicial killing took place in the Kiyamgei Santipur area of Manipur.
“The NHRC collected reports from various authorities and examined the same. The commission did not accept police’s account and held that Zamir Khan was not killed in a genuine encounter,” the CBI FIR had alleged. (AGENCIES)
