The Uttar Pradesh government has told the Supreme Court that after the murder of Atiq Ahmed and Ashraf Ahmed, the investigation into the encounter in the state found that “there was no mistake on the part of the police.”
The state government has said in its report in the Supreme Court that “the police has left no stone unturned in the impartial investigation of the murder of Atiq and Ashraf.”
In April this year, gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf Ahmed were shot dead while being taken for medical examination under police protection.
Both of them were murdered by shooting from very close range, after which the attackers who shot them surrendered before the police.
According to a news published in the newspaper Indian Express, on August 11, the Supreme Court had asked to file a status report regarding the investigation in seven cases including this case.
The court had asked Uttar Pradesh Police to file a status report regarding the questions raised in the two petitions. In one of these petitions, it was asked about the killings in police encounters in Uttar Pradesh and whether the government has followed the suggestions of the court and different commissions in this regard.
In the petition of lawyer Vishal Tiwari, questions have been raised on the encounter killing of Atiq Ahmed, Ashraf Ahmed, Atiq’s son Asad Ahmed, Vikas Dubey and his gang’s Mohammad Ghulam.
The second petition is of Atiq’s sister Ayesha Noori, in which she has requested for the investigation into the murder of Atiq and Ashraf Ahmed to be conducted under the supervision of the court.
According to the newspaper, the Uttar Pradesh Police denied all the allegations against them and said that following the guidelines of the court, the state government has conducted a detailed investigation in all the seven cases and has found that no mistake has been committed by the police. .
Times of India has also published this news. The newspaper writes that regarding the death of Vikas Dubey and his gang members in the encounter, the UP government has said in its status report, “In the report of Justice BS Chauhan Commission, no mistake was found in the actions of the government in these deaths. In these cases, the criminal investigation, judicial investigation and Human Rights Commission investigation have also found no wrongdoing on the part of the state government.”
“The final reports filed in these cases found that there was no fault of the police, and this report has also been accepted by the court. Neither the family members of the killed person nor any third party lodged any objection regarding these. The petitioners are raising the same issue again and again in the name of public interest and are wasting the court’s time.”
In the case of death of Asad Ahmed and Mohammad Ghulam, the judicial investigation did not find any fault of the police, in this case a two-member judicial commission headed by Allahabad High Court judge Justice Rajiv Lochan Mehrotra is investigating which is not over yet. .

A committee of five members headed by Allahabad High Court Chief Justice Dilip Babasaheb Bhonsle is also monitoring this case.
The state government said, “The police is leaving no stone unturned in the impartial investigation of this case. The allegations made against the police in the petition are baseless and completely false.”
According to a news published in Navbharat Times, the UP government has said in the status report that “Information related to the people killed in all the police encounters since 2017 and the things revealed in the investigation and interrogation are collected every month and the police Senior officials of the IAS investigate them.”
