Bhojpur Fake Encounter: CBI Court Serves Attachment Notice On Former IPS Jyoti Belur
Lucknow, July 21 (TNA) A CBI court has issued an attachment notice on the property of former Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Jyoti Belur, who is currently in London. According to information available, in the past she has been served non-bailable warrants (NBW) a whopping sixteen times but she failed to appear before the court.
She was dismissed from service in 2017 and she has been living in the United Kingdom for the past 20 years. The case is pertaining to an alleged fake encounter of four youngsters in Bhojpur when she was an additional SP in Modinagar, Uttar Pradesh.
Belur is residing in London and is a teaching staff member of the University College London (UCL). She is associated with the department of security and crime science. Tough the CBI didn’t charge her formally in the case, the court, after going through the agency’s chargesheet in the case, had summoned her as an accused in September 2007.
Belur, a 1993 batch IPS officer of then undivided Uttar Pradesh cadre, was on her first posting as an additional superintendent of police in Modi Nagar when, according to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), her subordinates shot dead four persons aged between 17 and 23 in a fake encounter in November 1996 to get promotions and gallantry medals.
