AMRITSAR: A Case has been  registered against Police Officials Vinod Kumar, Darshan Singh and Surinder Singh under section 304, 34, 201 IPC in  In Jandiala  police Station in connection with the  Manawala Toll Plaza Encounter Case in which Hoshiarpur resident was killed by CIA staff in December 2020.

Maninderpal, brother of the deceased, said Inderjit had lost his job during the lockdown and had started working as a driver. He had taken a family to Lucknow for a marriage function. From there, he was returning in a bus,  Maninderpal said.

 He added that Inderjit had told them that the battery of his mobile phone was on the verge of being exhausted. He said thereafter, they just got a call from the Hoshiarpur police that he was killed in an encounter in Jandiala. The family members had sought a probe from an independent agency.

The family also told the SIT that the police officers who gunned down Inderjeet gave them “compensation” of Rs. 15 lakh from their pocket. Sarabjit Singh Verka, principal investigator of an NGO, PHRO, asked if the encounter wasn’t fake, then why did the police give cash to the victim family?-
