Delhi government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the encounter of Manoj Vashisht in a restaurant in Rajender Nagar area of Delhi.
The encounter took place on Sturday night by special cell of Delhi police.
Manoj`s family met the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday. Kejriwal reportedly assured the family to look into the matter.
Reports said that the deceased was originally from Baghpat in UP. Hindi newspaper Bhaskar quoted Manoj`s wife Priyanka as saying that the Delhi police had `murdered` her husband.
She said, “my husband was not a terrorist. We demand that the prime minister should order a judicial inquiry into the fake encounter of my husband.”
Delhi police has denied these allegations adding that everything happened within 10 seconds.
Manoj had his photographs taken with country`s some of most powerful politicians. This included Uttar Pradesh`s chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.
