A video has been doing rounds on social media after the encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey, the video shows a Madhya Pradesh policemen saying “I hope he (Dubey) doesn’t reach Kanpur” has gone viral on social media platforms.
In the viral video, a colleague can be heard asking the cop that by what time Vikas Dubey would reach Kanpur. To this, the cop laughs and says, “I hope he doesn’t reach.”
His reaction raises several questions about the authenticity of the encounter. Some have termed it to be a “fake” one.
There are several reports doing rounds which claims that Dubey was seen in a different car than the one which overturned before the encounter have also surfaced. Dubey was seen travelling in safari car earlier and the vehicle which turtled before the encounter was a TUV300 SUV. So far, there have been no answers from the police so as to why was Dubey shifted to another vehicle.
The gangster’s elimination has also sparked a political storm in the state with opposing parties alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government is hiding “a deep secret”. Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav took to Twitter and wrote, “Actually. his car has not overturned, but the government has been saved from turning over the secret.”
Dubey was gunned down by the UP STF in an alleged encounter after the vehicle he was seated in overturned and he tried to escape from custody while being brought to Kanpur from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain, where he was arrested on Thursday morning.
He and his associates fled after ambushing eight policemen during a failed raid at his residence in Bikru village under the jurisdiction of Chaubepur Police Station in Kanpur last week.
