Khandwa: The inscriptions on the graves of five SIMI activists killed in an alleged encounter in Bhopal in October, which implied at glorifying their acts and described them as martyrs, have been removed, police said today.

"We raised the issue with the elders of Muslim community who got the inscriptions on the graves painted," District Superintendent of Police Mahendrasingh Sikarwar said. Some inscriptions which tried to portray the deceased as Islamic martyrs and some other things written on the graves in Urdu and Hindi were whitewashed last night, sources said.
