Gangster Vikas Dubey

On the run for six days following the brutal ambushing of eight policemen in Uttar Pradesh on July 3, dreaded history-sheeter Vikas Dubey, who is involved in more than 60 criminal cases already, has been finally arrested from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh while he was on his way to the Mahakal Temple to offer his prayers.

Nabbed by the cops, his brazenness was caught on camera when he shouted out aloud, “Main hoon Vikas Dubey, Kanpur wala.” From Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh to Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, it’s been a long 1200 km journey.

Two Uttar Pradesh cops who are believed to have been hand in gloves with Vikas Dubey and his men. While Tiwari worked as the Station Officer of Chaubeypur Police Station, Sharma was the SI of Chaubeypur Police Station. They were insiders with UP Police who tried their best to cover up Dubey’s tracks in all investigations and even act as his informers and give him regular tip offs about possible police action. They had possibly tipped off Dubey about the July 3 plan of the UP Police to nab Dubey and in the process became culpable in the murder of eight of their colleagues in the ambush.
