Manipur fake encounters: SC asks why FIRs against victims

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday slammed the CBI’s SIT for not properly probing alleged extra-judicial killings by the Army, Assam Rifles and police in Manipur and asked why FIRs were lodged against the victims and not against officers.
A division bench of Justices MB Lokur and Justice UU Lalit said it was ‘not satisfied’ with the progress made by the SIT of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the investigation.
“I am sorry but there is something terrible wrong… You (CBI) filed FIR against the victim (who are dead) saying he was insurgent. File FIR immediately. Enough is enough. We are not satisfied,” the bench said. The court was hearing a PIL seeking a probe into as many as 1,528 cases of extra-judicial killings in Manipur.
