Abstract

An encounter is a spontaneous meeting, which is not planned. In a different word we can say a belligerent meeting. There is a sudden often clash between the two parties. In the late 20th century India and Pakistan describe encounter as putative extrajudicial killing by the police or the armed forces, supposedly in self-defence, when they encounter suspect gangster or terrorist. Extrajudicial are those executions carried out in the absence of a death sentence imposed by a court judgement. In the human rights context, extrajudicial executions are illegal and intended killing carried out by the order of a government or with it’s connivance or accession other implementation. This Elucidation is used to distinguish encounter from like capital punishment after a fair trial.
