Mumbai: A petition has been filed in the Bombay high court, seeking a CBI inquiry into the alleged fake encounter that took place recently in Nalasopara. According to the petitioner, Surendra Rana, his brother Joginder Rana was killed in a fake encounter.

Surendra stated that despite repeated complaints to the police, no one took cognisance of the same and hence, he had no other option but to file a petition.

 

On July 24, Nalasopara crime branch constables killed Joginder Rana, a wanted in several cases of theft.

The police, at the time of the encounter, alleged that Joginder was shot dead by the police in self-defence after he attacked police personnel.

According to the petition, constables Manoj Sakpal and Mangesh Chavan who are attached to the Nalasopara crime branch, killed Joginder.

Joginder used to drive a tourist vehicle for his livelihood. No complaint was registered against him.

On July 23, the petitioner received a call that his brother had been killed in an encounter and that his body had been taken to the Vasai-Virar municipal hospital.

 

The petitioner was told that his brother was killed in an alleged quarrel with senior police officers. The petitioner also visited the spot where he was told his brother was eating vada pav with his friend, Sachin.

Both police constables started demanding money from him and when he refused to cough up the amount, they forced him to run, chased him and pumped bullets in his chest.

The petitioner alleged that the police had destroyed the evidence and had even got shop owners to delete the incriminating CCTV footage.

The petitioner sought that the accused constables be booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Arms Act.
