In a major decision the Supreme Court has ordered a CBI probe into the killing of 62 persons allegedly by the Army and police in Manipur. The SC sought a compliance report from the CBI by January 2018.
In this case the the Army had earlier told the SC that it had conducted a probe into 30 out of the 62 cases. The Army said that there was no need for a further probe into the matter.
The DC had on an earlier date refused to exempt Army personnel in AFSPA enforced areas from being named in FIRs relating to encounter killings.
