Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has ordered a judicial probe into the jailbreak incident. Retired judge of high court SK Pandey will lead the probe.
There were questions raised on the jailbreak incidents that leads to the killing of the suspected eight SIMI militants in Bhopal.
The eight undertrials were killed by Bhopal police in an alleged encounter after the militants escaped from Bhopal Central Jail after murdering a security guard.
Madhya Pradesh government is under constant pressure to order NIA investigations into the encounter incident. But, experts say NIA has no jurisdiction to probe the two incidents as they are not scheduled offences on their own and it can be ordered only after if the MP Police find evidence that the suspected SIMI militants were being helped by any terror group. However, to ease the mounting pressure, the MP CM has ordered a judicial probe into the matter.
