'Treat encounter killings as murder'

Hearing a batch of petitions filed by revolutionary writer P Varavara Rao and civil liberty organisations in connecton with encounter killing that took place at Manala in Nizambad district in March 2005, a five-judge bench of the High Court said,''in every case of an encounter death , a case must be registered against the police.'' The order was passed reversing an earlier judgement of another Bench dismissing a petition seeking registeration of murder cases in all encounter deaths.

The ruling assumes significance in the wake of a large number of killing of Naxalites in alleged 'fake encounters'' and also elimination of rowdy-sheeters in encounters.

torture is not interrogation. harassment is not investigation. now, get off your fat a%$@s, and serve the people for a change. not shoot them.
