New Delhi: The Delhi police on Monday released the video of Manoj Vashistha encounter that had happened in a city restaurant on Saturday.
The hazy video of around 20 second raises more questions than solving the mystery around the case.
The video shows that five cops in plain clothes entering the restaurant and surrounding Manoj who is seen sitting with his few friends while waiting for food to arrive.
Suddenly chaos starts and Manoj is seen lying in pool of blood below a table at the end of the video. At no point of time the video shows that Manoj was the first one to open fire at the cops.
Special cell, however, continue to maintain that it was Manoj who first opened the fire. They claimed that cops retaliated in self defence which led to his death.
Sources to the India TV said that MHA officials told Home Minister Rajnath Singh that the role of Special Cell in Manoj Vashistha encounter is dubious.
MHA sources said that government may order CBI probe into the incident.
