Hyderabad High CourtThe Hyderabad HC today sought to know if Andhra Pradesh Police have registered a case of unnatural death in connection with the killing of 20 people in a police operation in Chittoor district.

Additional Advocate General (AAG) D Srinivas submitted before the court that a magisterial inquiry is underway into the April 7 operation as per guidelines of the Supreme Court.

The AAG earlier filed a report of police before the court containing the details of 2 FIRs and identification of the bodies, their post-mortem besides names of relatives to whom they were handed over.

The AAG then informed the court that National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notices on the matter.

“NHRC is seized of the matter…Why should we look into that when there is initiation of NHRC proceedings,” the court noted, according of AAG.

The HC further observed that when the matter is under investigation it did not wish to comment on whether it is “death or killings”, the AAG said.
