A section of the media citing inputs from sources and quoting the police has said that notorious gangster Vikas Dubey, the main accused in the cold-blooded ambush and murder of eight policemen last week in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur, was seen at a hotel in Haryana’s Faridabad near Delhi on Tuesday.
The reports say that on Tuesday afternoon, raids were conducted at the Faridabad hotel and three men were arrested during an encounter. The hotel manager was quoted by the media as saying that a man resembling the wanted gangster had left the hotel before the cops reached. Police later confirmed the man was Vikas Dubey.
“Yesterday, two people came at around 12:30 pm. One of them showed an identity card, the photo was not clear. I told them this ID can’t be used. I hadn’t seen Vikas Dubey before this. The cops came at around 4:30 pm and asked for Dubey’s room details. They took the security footage along with them,” the hotel manager told the media.
Meanwhile, 25 teams of the UP police are conducting raids to arrest Dubey, who has been missing since Friday’s massacre. The bounty on him has also been increased to Rs 2.5 lakh from one lakh on Monday.
