Dehradun, July 5 (ANI): The body of Ranbir Singh, a 24-year-old MBA student, who was killed in the encounter by the Dehradun Police, bore 12 marks of bullets and 27 other injures, casting doubts that he may have been tortured before death.

According to a post-mortem report, 12 bullet marks revealed that Singh was fired from close range.

In another development, Singh's family today demanded a CBI inquiry. Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank had ordered a high-level inquiry into the killing of a MBA student in an encounter by the Dehradun Police.

Showing its support, the Congress also sought an inquiry by the central agency.

Ranbir Singh was killed in the encounter that took place here on Friday. He 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)
