Two Cops Are Accused of Hiring Hitmen to Take Out Their Enemies

The alleged hits could signal a new wave of police brutality and extrajudicial killings in India.

At least two police officials in India were accused this month of hiring hitmen to harass or murder their enemies, contributing to a troubling pattern of extrajudicial killings in the country.

Last week, Sheetal Pansare, a policewoman from the Indian state of Maharashtra, was accused of developing a relationship with a contract killer through Instagram, marrying him and then asking him to murder another cop she had accused of molestation and rape. The couple and a third alleged accomplice have been arrested and are awaiting trial for murder.
