Since Yogi govt began its 'encounter drive', the district has seen 7 killings. In every case, accomplices of the gangster escaped through sugarcane fields.
Four of the six encounters in Shamli district since July 2017 feature discrepancies, unexplained injuries, and allegations of torture and political vendetta.
Since the BJP government took over in March last year, 39 alleged gangsters have been killed in encounters. None of them was on the ‘most wanted’ list.
