Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday gave a secured response to the Supreme Court’s fres guidelines on the issue of fake encounters. BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said that while any fake encounter was incorrect, such incidents do take place in the line of duty.
“One will have to wait for the details till it come out and one will have to see what the details in the judgement are. As a preliminary thing it can be said any false encounter is incorrect. However, in the line of duty encounters can take place especially while dealing with the criminals or terrorists activities”, said the spokesperson.
Kohli asserted, “So, one has to wait. I am sure at an appropriate time after studying the judgement, the appropriate ministry or the concerned persons will definitely speak on it”.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Supreme Court had stated that in case of a fake encounter, the government should order immediate filing of a First Information Report (FIR) and a magisterial probe into the incident.
