New Delhi, Dec 12 (UNI) The National Human Rights Commission have send notices to the Delhi Police Commissioner, the DGP of Uttarakhand and DM of Haridwar in a case relating to the alleged fake encounter of one Jabar Singh by the Delhi Police and SOG Haridwar.

Taking cognisance of a report published in 'The Jansatta' on November 24, the NHRC said the contents of the press report, if true, raise a serious issue of human rights violation of the victim.

The press report alleged that Jabar Singh, a resident of village Chirauli in Haridwar has been killed by the Delhi Police and SOG at Haridwar in a fake encounter. The victim had managed sale of a plot at Jhajar to one Mukesh Giri, a property dealer, for Rs 258 crore and the commission for that sale was Rs 50 lakh. These transactions are reportedly behind the killing of Jabar Singh.

It is reported that the accused property dealer got him killed in collusion with Mr S K Giri, an Inspector of the Special Cell of Delhi Police.

The NHRC directed that a copy of the press report be forwarded to the Delhi Police commissioner, DGP of Uttarakhand, DM and SSP of Haridwar who have been directed to take action with regard to the investigation of the case as per guidelines.
