"The NHRC has 2,956 cases in connection with police encounters (gun battles) in different parts of the country until April this year. These include 1,590 cases registered on the basis of intimation received from public authorities and 1,366 cases registered on complaints received from public alleging fake encounter by police," the statement said.
Of the total cases registered, 1,846 cases have been expedited so far.
"On consideration of various reports and materials on record sought by the NHRC, it was found that out of 1,846 cases, 27 encounters by the police were fake. (A total of) 1,819 cases were found to be of genuine encounters by police," the statement added.
"The remaining 1,110 cases of encounters/alleged fake encounters are at different stages of consideration in the commission," it added.
