Dehradun: In its initial findings, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has claimed that the encounter in which a 24-year-old MBA student Ranbir Singh was killed by Dehradun police was a fake.


The CBI-SIT team reportedly visited the site and recovered over 10 cartridges that were lying underground. This clearly suggested that the bullets were fired from close range with Ranbir was lying on the ground.


The visit took place on August 1, and the CBI-SIT team recorded the statements of 14 people related to the case.


The CBI said the ground where Ranbir's body lay was deeply penetrated by bullets of AK-47 riffles. The deep penetration indicated that the body was riddled by bullets while lying on the ground.


The CBI also found that the pistol, recovered from Ranbir's possession was not fired.


Ranbir's body bore 12 bullet marks and 27 other injures, suggesting that he might have been tortured before his death.


According to a post-mortem report, the 12 bullet marks revealed that Ranbir was fired at close range.


Ranbir was riding a motorcycle with his two friends when the police stopped him at a check post.


Police alleged that 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.
