We normally see police officers shooting criminals and terming it as encounters in movies. But, this is turning into reality in Uttar Pradesh.

Nearly 950 encounters have been registered since Yogi Adityanath took charge as UP CM. This count is sending jitters down the spines of criminals.

However, these events are raising eyebrows as the numbers look alarming. Human rights commission has ordered a detailed report about these encounters.

Justice is very much essential in the society, but, these kinds of severe decisions can scare the general public as well.
