Supreme Court will not probe case against right-wing activists in connection to Hemant Karkare’s killing

The Bombay High Court had rejected the same plea in January 2018 which accused right-wing activists of killing Hemant Karkare

Supreme Court will not probe case against right-wing activists in connection to Hemant Karkare’s killing

On Thursday, the Supreme Court dismissed a plea seeking fresh probe into the killing of former Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare. He was martyred during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. While dismissing the case, the apex court said that the terrorists were found guilty and executed, hence, the case can't be reopened.

Maharashtra’s former Inspector General of Police S M Mushrif had filed a petition and he is of the view that Hemant Karkare was not killed by terrorists but by some other people who took advantage of the terrorist attack.

With the connection of 2008 Malegaon bomb blast case, Karkare had arrested several members of the right-wing group Abhinav Bharat.

During the terrorist attack, along with Hemant Karkare, senior police officers Ashok Kamte and Vijay Salaskar were killed outside Cama Hospital when Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab and his partner Ismail opened fire at their police van on November 26, 2008.

In January 2018, the Bombay High Court refused to order a probe into the death of Karkare and disposed off a petition alleging right-wing extremists killing Karkare.
