With raising questions on the police version of the killing of 8 SIMI militants who escaped the Bhopal Central prison early Monday morning, a second video footage released to media today shows five SIMI militants waving to the police officers. Though unverified, but the video raises questions on whether the escaping terror suspects wanted to surrender to the police and the encounter could have been avoided.

In the video, the police were also heard speaking to the Police Control Room, confirming that five men were trying to communicate with them.
Another video released earlier showed a policeman shooting at a terrorist, a second policeman taking out a knife from another and other six militants lying dead.

Addressing the media later in the evening, Inspector General of police, Yogesh Choudhary, however claimed that the militants were killed in crossfire where the police fired at them out of retaliation. Choudhary also claimed that the police had recovered four fire arms and three sharp weapons from the militants.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi expressed doubts on the police version, saying that there is quite a lot of discrepancy between the statements of police officials and the Home Minister and the complete theory is generally doubtful. Owaisi demanded a proper and indipendent investigation and has urged the Supreme Court to probe the matter.

There was high alert in Bhopal on Monday morning, after reports that 8 terror suspects from the banned SIMI group had escaped from the Bhopal Central prison after allegedly killing a head constable and tieing up one guard. Hours later the police hunt them down, 15 Kms away from the prison and the 8 militants were killed in a cross firing. The National Investigating Agency (NIA) will be investigating the matter.

      I dnt understand few things1. if they had guns with them then y didn't they kill that constable with it? Ok lets accpt that they got it after killing constable but police find knife from them, then y didn't they kill constable with knife? 2. How come only one constable was able to stop them where were others?3. 25ft wall they crossed it by bed sheets? I mean who was there on the top to hold it on the other end?4. If they really had guns then y dnt they stopped the cars on the highway? 5. Why they were running together?6. And in which jail people wear casual dress with sport shoes? 7. And if they were running on their own legs then how it is possible that police killed them about 7 to 8 km? 8. If the court decision was in their favour after few weeks then y would they broke the cell?9. Now police says they were planning something big.. ok i get it none of the accused were alived then how come they knew about it? If they already knew about it then how come they dnt knw about their escaping plans? 10. And now there are different different statements from the ig police locals and HM? N now the bhakts will troll me for taking there sides! So i will answer it before ur questions m not taking their side m criticising jails authorities ig and HM!
