Opposition terms Vikas Dubey’s arrest as drama, demands CBI probe

Lucknow: As Uttar Pradesh police is trying to save its face on how Vikas Dubey reached Ujjain to get himself arrested there on Thursday, the opposition parties have now raised question on the arrest drama of the most wanted criminal and further demanded a CBI probe.
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, in a tweet, said,”State government had failed to Act on the Kanpur incident as even after alert , the prime accused resched Ujjain. It seems there was a nexus .How come a three month old letter of a police officer goes missing and Vikas name was not in the criminal list, which proves a deep conspiracy.”
“UP government should recommend for a CBI probe which can only unravel the people giving protection to the criminal,” she further said.
On the other hand Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said ,”It has been reported that Kanpur incident prime accused has been arrested.”
“If this is correct, then state government should clarify whether it was an arrest or surrender. Besides this, the accused mobile call details should be made public so that people who were in touch with him could be identified,” Yadav said .
Senior Congress leader and former Union minister Jitin Prasada raised question on the arrest of Khushi, widow of Amar Dubey, who was killed in an encounter with police in Hamirpur on Wednesday. Amar had married Khushi on June 29 — just three days before the Bikru village encounter. She was widowed on Wednesday, a week after being married.
Prasada, who heads the Brahmin Chetna Parishad under the Congress banner, tweeted, “Khushi probably had no choice being married off to Amar and continues to suffer as a widow and facing police harassment. Get Vikas Dubey alive and expose the links and the rot in the system from top to bottom and justice prevails.”
He further tweeted that “The news of Prabhat Mishra’s encounter on Thursday while under arrest is further proof that the govt does not want anyone left alive to tell the real story.”
In a stupendous success for the law-enforcement sphere, gangster Vikas Dubey – prime accused in Kanpur District’s Choubepur encounter that resulted in the martyrdom of eight police personnel was placed under in MP’s Ujjain.
While being forced into a police vehicle, the unrepentant gangster turned to the crowd of onlookers and shouted in Hindi, “Main Vikas Dubey hoon, Kanpur waala (I am Vikas Dubey, the one from Kanpur!)”, which showed that he wanted to make his identification clear so that police cannot kill him in an encounter.
A related video went viral in social media.
Before Vikas Dubey’s arrest, UP police had shot dead five of his accomplices since 8 policemen were ambushed by the most wanted gangster at Bikaru village in Kanpur on Friday last.
