CBI registers five FIRs in Manipur fake encounters


New Delhi, Dec 8: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Saturday registered five FIRs against the CRPF, Imphal Police and Assam Rifles personnel in connection with alleged Manipur fake encounter cases under murder with common intention. 

The development followed the Supreme Court’s order to probe the killings.

On July 14, 2017, the apex court constituted the SIT comprising CBI officers and ordered registration of FIRs and probe into the alleged extra-judicial killings in Manipur.

The court had ordered the registration of FIRs in 81 cases, including 32 probed by a commission of inquiry, 32 investigated by judicial authorities, 11 in which compensation was awarded and six probed by a commission headed by former Supreme Court judge Santosh Hegde.
