The police encounter in which five persons were killed should be probed by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) under the supervision of the Madras High Court, ‘Evidence', a human rights organisation, said on Sunday.

Releasing the report of a fact-finding team A. Kathir, executive director of Evidence, questioned the police version that the five persons continued to stay in an apartment in Velachery even after the bank heist at Keelkattalai.

Mr Kathir said the police could have easily arrested the bank robbery suspects because the house in which they had stayed was in a narrow lane with a single entry and exit point.
