Gangster Vikas Dubey was encountered today, when he tried to escape from the police convoy taking him to Kanpur. Vokas Dubey has been arrested after killing 8 Uttar Pradesh Policemen, after they tried to arrest him.

Vikas Dubey was found with three bullet injuries on his chest, which proved fatal for him. Three other police personnel were also injured during this encounter, and the three of them are said to be stable. Luckily, bullets are said to have just brushed by two of them.

Many have been saying that this wasn’t an accidental encounter, and that it was planned, so that Vikas Dubey wouldn’t expose the corrupted police department. Vikas had reportedly said that information about his arrest was leaked to him from within the police department, as a result of which he was able to kill 8 policemen who tried to arrest him a few days ago. However, the doctor’s statement now makes it clear that Vikas Dubey was shot from the front and not while he was running away. If that had been so, the bullets would have hit him from the back.

ADG Prashant Kumar had explained the circumstances under which Vikas Dubey had to be killed, and said that, when Vikas Dubey tried to snatch police weapons and attempted to flee, there was retaliatory firing by the police in which he was injured.
