February 23, 2012 | Duration: 2 min, 29 sec
Five men who were suspected to be involved in two major bank robberies in Chennai earlier this year were killed in an encounter with police early this morning. Human rights activists are crying foul over the encounter and have questioned the need to kill the suspects. But police say the alleged robbers opened fire first and so they had to retaliate in self defence and to "save innocent lives."
