NEW DELHI| Gangster Vikas Dubey was killed in an encounter on July 10 when he tried to flee after a road accident police said. He was being taken to Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur from Madhya Pradesh, where he had been arrested on July 9.
One of the police vehicles taking Dubey from to Kanpur overturned early morning on the highway. The car that overturned reportedly had Dubey in it. Kanpur West SP has said, “Gangster Vikas Dubey attempted to flee after the car overturned. Police tried to make him surrender, during which he fired at the policemen. He was injured in retaliatory firing by police. He was later rushed to the hospital.” Earlier five members of Dubey gang were killed in separate encounters.
Dubey was known to have political connections, which many believed, helped him on multiple occasions. Reactions from political leaders started pouring in soon after the news broke. Here are a few of those reactions from key political personalities.
Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav said in a tweet (in Hindi), “Actually, the car has not overturned. The government has been saved from overturning by keeping a secret.”
दरअसल ये कार नहीं पलटी है, राज़ खुलने से सरकार पलटने से बचाई गयी है.
