The SBSP chief also alleged that "since the BJP government came in power, Vikas Dubey was being shielded by the state administration. In order to save himself, Vikas had revealed how some leaders used to aid him."
The gangster is the main accused in the encounter that took place in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur last week, in which a group of assailants allegedly opened fire on a police team, which had gone to arrest Dubey. Eight police personnel were killed in the encounter.
Dubey, the main accused in the Kanpur encounter case was arrested by the police in Ujjain on Thursday morning. He was on the run for the last several days and had come to Ujjain to offer prayers at Temple, where he was identified by a security guard at the shrine.
Gangster Vikas Dubey attempted to flee after the car overturned. Dubey attempted to flee by snatching pistol of the injured policemen.
Dubey managed to escape after the killing. The Uttar Pradesh police launched a hunt for him and raised the bounty on him to Rs 5 lakh.
During police interrogation, Vikas Dubey told cops that he told his men to run in separate directions. He said that he received information that the raid will take place in the morning, but the cops came at night only.
UP gangster Vikas Dubey, who butchered 8 policemen in Kanpur encounter, moved to 3 states before being nabbed in Ujjain. Here is how he managed to give the cops a slip.
"As per evidence, it has been found that the two police personnel Vinay Tiwari & KK Sharma had informed Vikas Dubey about the raid beforehand. So, he was on alert and planned to attack police which resulted in the death of 8 policemen," SSP Kanpur Dinesh Prabhu.
According to TV reports, the history-sheeter was spotted in Faridabad today. He was apparently staying at a relative’s house in the city but moments before the police team reached the spot, the gangster fled.
