After a man was shot in the Noida Sector-122 by a sub-inspector on Saturday night, his family has alleged it was “a fake encounter.” Jitendra Yadav is currently being treated in Noida’s Fortis Hospital where security has been deployed. The victim’s family also alleged that caste row has led to firing. Four policemen have reportedly been suspended for allegedly being involved in the “fake encounter”.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Love Kumar told ANI that the cops involved in the shooting have been suspended. “The four policemen have been suspended with immediate effect. We have seized service revolver of the sub-inspector who fired the gun shots and sent him to jail,” he said, adding that the incident was not an “encounter”.
“Prima facie it looks like case of personal enmity. During the probe it was found that the trainee sub-inspector knew the elder brother of the man who was shot,” Kumar said.
