Ansal Plaza encounter: Doctor allowed to prove it was fake

A doctor, who had alleged that the Ansal Plaza encounter in 2002 in which two alleged Pakistani militants were killed was fake, has been allowed by a Delhi court to record his evidence before it to support his claims.

Hari Krishna, a homoeopath, today held a press conference along with his lawyer Habib Ahmed and said that his complaint was heard by Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjeev Kumar who fixed March 23 to record pre-summoning evidence which will be led by him.

The police have all through maintained that the encounter was genuine.

The doctor, who claimed himself to be the eye-witness of the November 3, 2002 incident in the basement parking lot of the Ansal Plaza complex in south Delhi, alleged that two persons were gunned down by the Special Cell of Delhi Police.

In the complaint filed by him, he said that he had made 47 persons including the top cops of the special cell at that time as an accused.

He said he has also named one of the owner of the shopping complex and CEO of a private telecom company as an accused as they had allegedly helped the police in carrying out their illegal acts.

The doctor said he has supported his complaint with documents including his cellphone's call details which were allegedly forged by the telecom company at the instance of the Delhi Police to prove his allegations as wrong.
