Gangster Vikas Dubey killed trying to flee, opposition says encounter planned

Gangster Vikas Dubey, wanted in the recent killing of 8 cops, was killed in an encounter after he allegedly tried to flee when the STF vehicle bringing him to Kanpur overturned.

The opposition claimed that the killing was planned to conceal Dubey’s links with top cops and politicians.

However the police has rubbished these allegations and said that the firing that killed the gangster was solely in self defence.

Meanwhile a section of the media citing their sources on Thursday had reported that Dubey had contacted Noida Police to surrender. However, they refused to carry out the procedure. Later, the lawyer also reached out to the Delhi Police for the gangster’s surrender but was also denied, the reports said.

Dubey then moved to Kota in Rajasthan where his surrender was once again refused by the state police. He finally spoke to one Tiwari in Ujjain whose brother happens to be a businessman in Kanpur.
