According to the police version, Rakesh was injured in exchange of fire, but the post mortem revealed blackening in three firearm wounds on the chest of the deceased, the statement said.

Further, the Commission observed that the injured constable said in his statement that after JN Medical College, he was admitted in Varun Hospital.

However, there was not a whisper about the admission of the concerned constable in Varun Hospital either in the FIR or during the magisterial enquiry. It appeared that the story of admission was subsequently thought of.

Even if the discharge slip of Varun Hospital were to be believed, the constable was hit by the bullet on his right forearm and the bullet passed through, yet he testified before the SDM during magisterial enquiry that he had signed the ‘Fard'.

“The Commission, therefore, was unable to understand as to how a person who had received a bullet injury on the right forearm a short while earlier could have signed the ‘Fard'.  “The Commission found the police version of the incident non-credible and the CBCID investigation report unacceptable,” said the statement.
