New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission today asked the Uttar Pradesh government to pay monetary relief of Rs 3 lakh each to the next of kin of those who were killed in a fake police encounter on September 2, 2003.


It has also asked the State Government to submit compliance report with proof of payment within eight weeks. The Commission considered this case on two complaints, alleging fake encounter, filed on September 12, 2003 and March 9, 2004 by K N Srivastava and Bhansidhar Sahu, a farmer, respectively.


''It was found that Ram Shankar, son of Sahu and Prabhat Singh, son of a retired teacher Lallan Prasad, hailing from a village in Jharkhand, were going to Beejpur by train when police picked them while they alighted at Jharokas railway station to take some refreshment", a NHRC spokesperson told UNI.


''They took them to the forest within the jurisdiction of Police Post Mayorpur and killed them in a fake encounter,'' he added.


The police had claimed that they were in search of criminals involved in robbery of a bus on September 1, 2003 and in this connection had gone to Rantola forest on September 2, 2003. They overheard conversation among some people hiding in the Khadpattar Nallah. They said they were convinced that the those people hiding in the Nallah were involved in the robbery as when asked to surrender, they started firing at them and in self defence they had to return fire.


''However, State Crime Branch's, Criminal Investigation Department, found that the police story of encounter was not correct”, the spokesperson informed. A criminal case was also registered against the delinquent police personnel at Police Station Pipri in Sonebhadra district.


Subsequently, the Uttar Pradesh government in response to Commission's showcause notice conceded in letter dated May 13, 2008 that the slain boys' next of kin were entitled to monetary relief, he said.
