Gujarat Fake encounter net widens, Pathans kin to move Supreme Court

In yet another instance of an alleged fake encounter killing by the Gujarat Police, kin of Samir Khan Pathan are all set to move the Supreme Court for a detailed probe to unravel the truth.

Ahmedabad, May 4 : In yet another instance of an alleged fake encounter killing by the Gujarat Police, kin of Samir Khan Pathan are all set to move the Supreme Court for a detailed probe to unravel the truth.

Branding Pathan as a Jaish-e-Mohammad militant, the Gujarat Police had shot him dead after attempted to flee from custody.

Police had said Pathan had also planned to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Lal Krishna Advani.

Pathan's father, Sarfaraz Khan, said his son was innocent, and that they would move the Supreme Court to seek justice.

"We are quite hopeful. We will definitely move the court. There is some evidence we have, and after we are fully sure of it, we will file a case," said Sarfaraz Khan.

Pathan's family is determined to find out the truth behind the encounter.

"My son's case was otherwise already closed, but we will let them know that his encounter was wrong. They have labelled him a militant, but they did not recover any ammunition from him. The police, when arresting him, had told him that they would kill him," Sarfaraz said.

Pathan's mother, Janud Bibi, said: "He (Pathan) was not a militant. He was a good person. They made a mistake by killing him".

Pathan's parents said the surfacing of a similar fake encounter case has prompted them to knock the doors of the Supreme Court in search for justice.

The Gujarat Police, on Supreme Court's prodding, has arrested three senior police officers for killing Sohrabuddin Sheikh in a November 2005 fake encounter.

Sheikh was reportedly gunned down on November 26, 2005 after being branded a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant by the Gujarat Police.

Gujarat cadre IPS officers Border Range DIG D G Vanzara and SP (Operations) Rajkumar Pandyan; and Alwar (Rajasthan) SP M N Dinesh Kumar have been accused and arrested in connection with Sohrabuddin Sheikh case.

The probe revelation has raised a debate across the country over staged encounters by security forces at the behest of political bosses.
