Mumbai: Encounter Specialist Pradeep Sharma Reinstated

Press Trust of India
Mumbai, May 8: A police officer credited with gunning down 112 gangsters was Thursday given his job back, nine months after he was sacked on charges of extorting millions of dollars from the underworld.

Mumbai police inspector Pradeep Sharma was cleared of charges that he had amassed Rs 300 crore from Mumbai’s thriving underworld during his 25 years in service.

The 48-year-old officer earned the nickname 'encounter specialist' for shooting 112 alleged criminals but was sacked last August after his superiors accused him of joining hands with Mumbai's crime syndicates, officials said.

Sharma, who was also linked to India's most-wanted gangster Dawood Ibrahim, denied the allegations.

Officials said a state justice tribunal in Maharashtra, of which Mumbai is the capital, rejected the charges and ordered the reinstatement of Sharma into the city police department.
