In a rejoinder affidavit, the petitioner has also raised concern that the Judicial Inquiry Commission set up, in this case, is illegal and that the SIT probing the case comprises of persons facing fake encounter charges.
Petitioner-in-person Anoop Prakash Awasthi who sought a CBI or NIA monitored probe into the extra-judicial killing of Vikas Dubey by the Uttar Pradesh Police has told the Supreme Court that the judicial inquiry commission constituted by Yogi Adityanath led government is “illegal” and that the members of the Special Investigating Team (SIT) were facing fake encounter charges.
Awasthi’s affidavit came in response to the reply filed by the Uttar Pradesh police which had stated that Vikas Dubey had never surrendered, but was nabbed after a tip-off from the Madhya Pradesh Police.
