Fate: They were killed by the elite Special Cell of the Delhi Police on November 3, 2002 in the basement of the posh Ansal Plaza shopping mall.
Case: No case has been registered against the policemen involved in the encounter. But two days after the shooting, one Dr Hari Krishna claimed he had witnessed the event and that the encounter was fake. He said a few men in plain clothes had pulled the two out of a car and gunned them down. Soon after, Krishna went into hiding, probably out of fear, because several false cases were filed against him.
The police claimed the two men were terrorists Dawood Ali and Ejaz, who had come to Delhi to plan an attack on the shopping mall before Diwali. The police said they had recovered an AK-47 rifle and 60 rounds from the men. Rajbir Singh executed the encounter. He has won five gallantry awards for encounters. He lived 200 metres away from Ansal Plaza.
