The Centre on 9 April, 2013, submitted before the Supreme Court that findings of the apex court appointed committee's report on extra judicial killings in Manipur are being examined at highest level.

Appearing before a bench headed by Justice Aftab Alam, Additional Solicitor General Paras Kuhat said the Santosh Hegde committee report is seen at highest level in Army headquarters and Home and Defence ministries.

He said that the Central government is absolutely committed that no fake encounter should take place in Manipur and equally aggrieved by the incidents that had taken place.

The committee, comprising former Supreme Court judge Hegde, ex-CEC J M Lyngdoh and a senior police officer, probing six cases of alleged extra-judicial killings in Manipur came to conclusion that these were not genuine encounters and the victims, including a 12-year-old boy, did not have any criminal records.
