Bhaopal : In a facebook post Justice Katju blammed complete system, he wrote:
From what I could gather, the so called ‘encounter’ in Bhopal was fake, and all those responsible for it, not only those who did the actual executions, but also those who ordered it, including politicians and senior police officers, must be given death sentence, as held by my bench in the Supreme Court in Prakash Kadam vs. Ramprasad Vishwanath Gupta ( see online ).
In the Nuremburg trials after the end of the Second World War the Nazi war criminals took the plea that ‘ orders are orders ‘. But this plea was rejected, and most of them were ordered to be hanged.
So trigger happy policemen who think they can do extra judicial killings and get away with it should know that the gallows await them
