The Supreme Court has dismissed the Centre’s curative petition seeking a recall of its verdict giving police the liberty to probe the role of armed forces in alleged encounter cases in areas where AFSPA is in force. A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar said on Wednesday that no case is made out within the parameters indicated in the decision of the apex court.

The Centre had moved the Supreme court on 12th April seeking recall of its verdict in the alleged extra-judicial killings case in Manipur. The Centre said the verdict negated the protection available to the armed forces under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, AFSPA, during anti-militancy operations.
