Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the UP police, informed the top court that the state government proposes former apex court judge Justice Chauhan's name to head the three-member inquiry commission into the encounter of
and his associates.
The other two members of the commission are -- retired judge of Allahabad High Court Justice Shashi Kant Agarwal and former Director General of Police K L Gupta.
The apex court noted that the secretarial assistance to the Justice Chauhan committee, shall be provided by the Centre and not the state government.
The bench also declined to monitor the investigations into Dubey's encounter. "Just because it has received so much publicity, we cannot begin monitoring criminal investigation," said the Chief Justice.
The commission will begin functioning within a week.
