Army orders probe into Bengaluru student's death
December 29, 2008 18:39 IST
The "internal" probe into the shooting at the Flag Staff House here, the residence of Commander of Karnataka and Kerala [Images] Sub-Area, would be conducted by an Army colonel from the Madras Engineering Group & Centre in Bengaluru [Images], Army sources said.
It would look into the breach of security, verify the version given by sentries, find out what other army guards on duty were doing at the time of the incident and suggest measures, if needed, to enhance security, sources said. "The inquiry is expected to be completed in a couple of days", the sources said.
The student Mohammed Mukkaram Pasha was shot dead by sentries who suspected him of being a terrorist. Pasha had entered the Flag Staff House compound trying to escape from a police team, in the wee hours on Sunday, which was chasing him for allegedly engaging in 'wheeling', riding a motorbike on its rear wheel.
