Family members of Rahul Raj, the victim of the alleged police encounter in Mumbai, will move the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) seeking justice for Rahul Raj, who was killed in a police encounter in Mumbai.
Talking to the Hindustan Times, KP Singh, the father of Rahul Raj said, “We will move the NHRC soon to seek justice to the innocent boy. Though the NHRC has already served notice to the Maharashtra Government to submit a report on the incident, we are also planning to approach the quasi-judicial body. My son, Rahul had visited Mumbai for the first time. He was simple and may have fell into the trap of some people. There must be some high level conspiracy to kill him,” he said.
Rahul’s father is also seeking judicial advice to lodge separate FIRs against the police personnel involved in the encounter. “The report provided by the Mumbai police mentioned names of five persons involved in the encounter. We are now planning to file named FIR against those five cops. Names of the cops involved in the case include Javed and Sadanand,” he said adding that a case of conspiracy would also be filed against Raj Thackarey.
Earlier, the Congress leader, Sanjeev Kumar Toni called upon the family at Kadam Kuan residence to express grief over the incident. A local of Nala Road area, Amitabh Rituraj informed that the shopkeepers of the Nala Road in the stat capital kept their shops closed during the day hours on Saturday in protest of the brutal killing of Rahul who lived in their neighbourhood.
