An unverified audio clip of police control room during Bhopal encounter of 8 ‘SIMI’ activists has emerged on social media. The unverified clip contains the 9mins 35 seconds long recording of police control room, whilst the encounter was going on.
The voices on the unverified audio are allegedly of the police team on the spot, commanding officer and police officials sitting in the control room. Orders such as ‘Don't fall back, go ahead, surround them and finish them off’ and ‘Don't leave them’ can be clearly heard in the clip.
Although the validity of the clip is in question, but it has further fuelled the suspicion that Bhopal encounter was staged.
A probe has been ordered into the matter.
At the beginning of the unverified clip, commanding officer can be heard saying “Bilkul Pichhe nahin hatna hai, gherke pura ker do kaam tamam” (Don't fall back, go ahead, surround them and finish them off).
Few second later at 00:53 and then again at 01:45 the police team at site is heard saying “Firing chalu ho gayi hia idher se bhi” (Firing has started from the other side), to which the officer allegedly responded - don't leave them, answer the firing.
