The continued revelations of fake encounter killings of innocent citizens by the Gujarat police is apparently just the tip of the iceberg.
Between October 2002 and April 2006, there have been at least 21 fake encounters in Gujarat.
Two more families of extra-judicial killings now demand justice. The mother of Mahendra Jadhav and the widow of Jaffer Quasim Â– victims of illegal bullets and torture by the Gujarat police, now demand justice.
The Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) has consistently supported the legal struggle of these families.
A Media Conference will be held;
On Wednesday, 9th

This Media Conference will be addressed by Ms. Teesta Setalvad, the Secretary of Citizens for Justice and Peace and by some family members of the victims of the fake encounters.
