The application prays for a committee headed by a retired Supreme Court judge to inquire into the encounters that have been taking place in the State of Uttar Pradesh.
People’s Union of Civil Liberties (PUCL) has filed an urgent application in a pending matter before the Supreme Court, seeking a probe monitored by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) into the encounter killing of gangster Vikas Dubey and his aides Amar Dubey and Prabhat Mishra.
The application has been filed in a pending matter, filed by PUCL in May 2018. This plea sought to question the encounters that had taken place in Uttar Pradesh from January 2017 to March 2018. It had stated in detail the number of encounters and how the statements of ministers prove that they favour the practice.
