The Supreme Court is going to seek the help of the CBI or order a SIT probe in relation to the infamous Chittoor encounter.

According to the Tamil Nadu version, the 20 people killed in the encounter in the first week of April were innocent wage workers.

There was a large hue and cry regarding the killings by Tamil Nadu government and human rights associations, dubbing the encounter as ‘fake’ and ‘deliberate attempt’ to kill people. Hence the case reached the Supreme Court.
