A Delhi court has issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against 11 Uttarakhand policemen accused of killing an MBA student Ranbir Singh in a fake encounter in Dehradun in 2009.
Special CBI Judge VK Maheshwari issued the NBWs against 11 of the 18 accused Dehradun police personnel, seeking their presence in the court on June 5. Singh, 22, an MBA student from Ghaziabad, was allegedly gunned down by Uttarakhand police after being caught at Mohini Road where he and his companions were allegedly trying to commit some crime on July 3, 2009.
The Supreme Court transferred the case to Delhi on the plea of Ranbir's father, Ravindra Singh. The NBWs have been issued against the then constables Satbir Singh, Sunil Saini, Chander Pal, Saurabh Nautiyal, Nagendra Nath, Vikas Chandra Baluni, Sanjay Rawat, Mohan Singh Rana, Inder Bhan Singh and Manoj Kumar and Head operator at city control room Jaspal Singh Gosain.
Singh's father had alleged that his son had gone to Dehradun in search of a job where the police arrested him on July 3 on pretext of being involved in some robbery. He alleged that 29 bullets were pumped in his body in a fake encounter. All cops have been charged with murder, kidnapping and criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.
