CBI Probe Recommended into MBA Graduate’s Killing

Into alleged fake encounter of an MBA graduate Ranbir Singh at Dehradun, Uttarakhand government has recommended a CBI investigation. The youth from Ghaziabad was killed on Friday.

The move came following Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank’s statement that his government was prepared for the CBI probe.

“I have full faith in the CB-CID. But if the family members of Ranbir want a CBI probe into the matter, we will not shy away from it also,” Nishank said on Monday after meeting the father of 22-year-old Ranbir Singh.

It may be mentioned that Ravindrapal Singh, Ranbir’s father, and other relatives met the Chief Minister at secretariat on Monday afternoon with demands of CBI investigation into the killing. Besides, they insisted on strict action against erroneous police officials.

Previously, SSP, Dehradun, said that there was no proof suggesting Ranbir being a criminal. A case of murder was lodged against an SSP and 6 other policemen allegedly involved in the encounter.

Since the autopsy report revealing that Ranbir was shot from close range and injury marks showed that he might have been tortured, was out; political parties as the Congress, the ruling BJP and many human rights activists have been supporting the demand of youth’s family for a CBI probe.

BJP president Rajnath Singh, an MP from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, reportedly spoke to Nishank over telephone over the issue and asked him to sympathetically consider the demand for a CBI probe.

Facing mounting pressure from various quarters, Nishank on Sunday night held a high-level meeting with top administrative and police officials over the issue and later announced the removal of Dehradun SSP Amit Sinha from the post. Seven policemen including, Sub-Inspector G D Bhatt, involved in the encounter, were sent to police lines.
