Dehradun, July 5 (ANI): Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank has ordered a high-level inquiry into the killing of a MBA student in an encounter by the Dehradun Police.
"We are considering a high-level inquiry. I had ordered a magisterial inquiry and handed it over to the Additional District Magistrate. We will hand over the inquiry to the Crime Branch-Crime Investigation Department," said Nishank.
Ranbir Singh, a 24-year-old MBA student, was killed in the encounter that took place here on Friday.
The body was handed over to his relatives after post mortem on Saturday.
Ranbir's brother said that the victim was innocent and was framed.
"Now when the police is returning the body, they had marked the body as a criminal, but later they corrected it. This means, he was not a criminal. They had framed him," said Sandeep, Ranbir's brother.
Police had earlier claimed Ranbir to be a criminal.
Ranbir was riding a motorcycle with his two friends when the police stopped him at a check post.
Police alleged the three men got into an altercation with a sub-inspector who had asked them to stop and then fled into a nearby forest after snatching his service revolver.
In the ensuing encounter, Ranbir was gunned down while the other two managed to escape. (ANI)
