Normally the Police make encounters,because the victim manage to get released by the Courts in need of witness and proof.As already he was a notable crime, the public who were the witness fails to appear in the courts fearing their life.So the guts of the victims grows.At one stage when the police unable to control and was not able to get him punished,as they have no other way than the encounter.
And at this time some organaisation called themselves as Human Rights Forums used to make hue & cry. are they supporting the criminals? And what was their answer to those who suffered by that encountered criminal? They are raising this only for publicity.
So in my view I support encounter killing by the genuine police officials.
