CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan slams critics of Bhopal SIMI encounter, calls for fast track courts

"We will have to evolve a system for quick trials. How long can you keep them under trial? Some people even get chicken biriyani in jail. We should seriously consider setting up fast-track courts," the Indian Express quoted him as saying.

The CM also questioned if the SIMI men were made to escape. "Bhage ki bhagaye gaye? (did they escape or were they made to escape)? Some politicians are insulting the martyrdom of head constable Ramashankar Yadav whose throat was slit," the daily quoted him as saying.

"Hum kisi ko chhedenge nahin magar hame chheda to chhodenge nahi (we will not harass anyone but if we are harassed, will not spare anyone),'' he said.

In a series of tweets on 1 November, Chouhan lauded the efforts of the policemen.

Chouhan announced that a colony would be renamed after head constable Ramashankar Yadav, who was reportedly murdered by the eight SIMI men during the escape.
