31 years on, 8 cops convicted in Gonda fake encounter case

The agency found that after Singh got injured, the policemen forcibly dragged 12 villagers out of their houses and shot them dead. They were later shown killed in cross-firing. The agency found most of the firearms shown recovered from the villagers were not in working condition.

Gonda police, which first probed the encounter, filed a closure report in the court. In 1983, K P Singh's wife Vibha Singh moved the Supreme Court, alleging foul play in the death of her husband and demanding CBI probe. Vibha died in 2004. His daughter Pranjal Singh said they had suffered for 31 years. Pranjal is Assistant Commissioner of Customs at Ambala. Her elder sister Kinjal Singh is District Magistrate of Bahraich.

In 1984, the Supreme Court directed for CBI investigation.
