West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on 2 November asserted that she did not agree with the police's version of the alleged "encounter" of eight SIMI activists who escaped from the high security Bhopal Central Jail.
Mamata Banerjee took to Twitter to allege that it was a "political vendetta" and that the killings have raised serious doubts and questions in the minds of the people.
We do not agree with the so-called encounter theory. Many unanswered questions arise in the minds of the people. [1/2]— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) November 2, 2016
This is all happening in the name of political vendetta. Issues like these make me deeply concerned about national integrity & unity [2/2]— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) November 2, 2016
However, it is not only Mamata Banerjee who has raised questions about the encounter. Several other Opposition leaders, including Digvijay Singh, Arvind Kejriwal and Mayawati, have demanded a probe into the encounter.
