30 MPs urge stringent action against fake encounter culprits

New Delhi : As many as 30 Members of Parliament belonging to different political parties, including DMK, Rashtriya Janata Dal, CPI(M), CPI, and Congress submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here Monday, demanding stringent action against erring IPS officers held in Sohrabuddin fake encounter and Kauser Bi murder cases.

The parliamentarians also urged the Prime Minister to initiate an enquiry into whether Gujarat administration was hand in glove with these erring men in uniform.

These lawmakers cutting across party lines got united to raise their voice of concern soon after the Modi dispensation's submission to the Supreme Court that after the encounter-killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife Kauser Bi was also done to death and her dead body was burnt.

Congress chief whip in Lok Sabha Madhusudan Mistry said this new confession of the crime shows that the arrested IPS officers are mere scapegoats while the real culprits are ruling the roost. "These officers must have acted on the behest of Chief Minister and Minister for Home Affairs," he stressed.
