25 C'garh cops booked in Meena Khalkho's "fake encounter" case

Raipur, Apr 15 (UNI) Sixteen-year-old tribal girl Meena Khalkho's alleged "fake encounter" case today took a new turn with the Chhattisgarh CID police registering an First Information Report (FIR) against 25 policemen of Balrampur District on murder charges.
The state regime handed over the investigation of nearly four-year-old controversial case to the CID last week on the recommendations of a judicial inquiry report which reportedly raised questions over killing of the minor girl in a police-Naxal encounter and the claim that the tribal girl was a Maoist. The Commission
also held that Khalkho succumbed to police bullet fired from a close range.
On July 6, 2011, Meena Khalkho was shot dead in an alleged police-Naxal encounter at Longartola under Chando police station limits in Balrampur district, which was disputed by her family and villagers forcing the government to order a judicial probe.
According to ADG (CID) Rajiv Srivastava, a -five-member investigation team was constituted for a thorough probe into the incident. All the accused cops, including Chando State House Officer (SHO), have been booked under section 302 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, he added.
