Vikas Dubey Encounter LATEST Updates: Advocate Ghanshyam Upadhyay had apprehended in his plea that there is a high possibility that Vikas Dubey will also be killed in a 'fake' encounter after his arrest from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh a day ago.
Day before Vikas Dubey's death on Friday morning, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court demanding urgent listing for action into the "possible killing" of the gangster by Uttar Pradesh Police.
Madhya Pradesh Police has done its job by arresting Vikas Dubey and handing him over to Uttar Pradesh Police at the inter-state border, said Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra.
'The culprit has been killed but what about the crime and the people who protected it?' said Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, alleging that the incident ensured Vikas Dubey didn't reveal his nexus with top politicians.
Four policemen were injured in the incident that occurred on Friday. Vikas Dubey has been killed in police encounter, confirmed Kanpur IG Mohit Agarwal to ANI.
A day after his arrest in Ujjain, Uttar Pradesh gangster Vikas Dubey was killed in an encounter while being transported to Kanpur, according to several media reports.
As per ANI, the incident occurred after one of the vehicles of the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force convoy bringing Dubey back from Madhya Pradesh overturned.
Dubey attempted to flee and snatch the pistol of an injured policeman after the car overturned, SP Kanpur West told ANI.
He then fired on the policemen and was injured in retaliatory firing and taken to hospital, SP Kanpur West told ANI.
Dubey was then declared dead at hospital.
Police are at the spot and more details are awaited, as per ANI.
Dubey, wanted in connection with the Kanpur ambush in which eight policemen were killed, was arrested on Thursday after a week-long hunt.
Eight policemen, including a deputy superintendent of police, were ambushed in Bikru village in the Chaubeypur area
of Kanpur, where they had gone to arrest Dubey and fell to bullets fired from rooftops last Friday.
