Mewat encounter

In Nuh District of Haryana, a boy from Khadkhadi village- Munfaid alias Chauda s/o Islam- was killed in a police encounter on 16.09.2017. The victim’s father has in a written statement alleged that in the evening of 15/9/2017, his son called him and his father in law (Khurshid s/o Rehmat) to village Tekadi, PS Nuh. There Munfaid told them that CIA Staff members namely, Vikrant, Shakti Singh, Satish and Siddharth had called him to Rewari. Upon meeting them, they told Munfaid that they will close all the false cases registered against him if he does some work for them. The victim’s father and Father in Law, in order to escape the everyday harassment by the police, advised Munfaid to do whatever the police are asking him to do. Thereafter, on the morning of 16.09.2016, the victim’s father was informed that his son was shot at Kala Pahad ki Ghhati, Tauru Nuh Road at around 2-3 am. In his complaint, the father has alleged that the above named officials have conspired and murdered his son. He went to the Mortuary of Nuh Hospital, where he identified the dead body of his son. However, in a blatant attempt to cover up the incident by the police, the FIR lodged by the Police, is not based on the statement given by the victim’s father. The FIR is infact based on the statement given by Inspector Mastana, CIA Staff, Nuh, Haryana. The FIR bearing No. 0358, dated 16.09.2017, filed at 10.39am, in PS Tauru, District Nuh, u/s 302, 201 IPC and Section 25 Arms Act, 1959, has been filed against unknown accused persons. The FIR states that Inspector Mastana, came across a white pick up truck in an abandoned mining Kanta in Tauru Ghhati, where he found a person grievously injured. The victim was taken to Nalhad Hospital, Nuh, where he was declared dead. It was found that the person was shot in his neck by unknown people. The CIA Staff contacted the police station, and the FIR was thus registered.
