‘Yes, I’m Vikas Dubey from Kanpur’; right here is how gangster was arrested

Lucknow, July 9

Uttar Pradesh’s dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, who has had a factor for Bollywood, on Thursday surrendered over a thousand kilometres away from what may very well be his swan music of a felony life within the Mahakaal temple premises of Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain as he introduced in Sanjay Dutt’s “Khalnayak” fashion: “Mein huin Vikas Dubey, Kanpurwala”.

Dubey has been on the run for nearly per week, ever for the reason that ambush and killing of eight police personnel in Kanpur. As police looked for him in Haryana, Delhi, and stored an in depth watch on Indo-Nepal border, the Kanpur boy who had launched himself into crime within the 1990s within the picture of Sunny Deol’s “Arjun Pandit” and beloved the sound of being addressed to as “Pandit” in political and police circles, managed to dodge the bullet as he was nabbed within the protected grounds of the temple complicated.

According to sources, Vikas reached the temple round 8.a.m after which knowledgeable the safety males about his id and requested them to tell the police.

In {a photograph} that has gone viral, exhibits Dubey sitting comfortably on a settee contained in the temple complicated.

Uttar Pradesh Police formally confirmed the arrest of Vikas Dubey. Madhya Pradesh Home minister Narottam Mishra tried took credit score for the gangster’s arrest. Speaking to the media minutes after Dubey was whisked away to an unidentified location for medical examination and questioning, Mishra mentioned: “Hamari police kisi ko nahin chhodti. Hamare jaanbaaz police jawanon ne usey dhar dabocha (Our police never lets any criminal go scott free. They have nabbed him).”

Mishra mentioned the small print of his arrest and associated course of can be made public by the police later. Mishra mentioned Dubey has been identified to be “cruel and crafty” from childhood. The police needed to be additional cautious.

Mishra mentioned the police was alerted by the intelligence companies. Video clips launched by varied channels confirmed Vikas Dubey being held by the scruff of his collar by the police, shouting, “Haan main Vikas Dubey hoon Kanpur wala (Yes I am Vikas Dubey from Kanpur)”.

Everything factors to Vikas having travelled all the best way from Faridabad to the excessive safety zone of Mahakaal to keep away from a loss of life in police encounter. In the safe premises of Mahakaal temple he might keep away from additional judicial justice. Two of his alleged gang members have been additionally mentioned to have been arrested.

The Madhya Pradesh police has taken the gangster away to the Mahakaal police station and the UP police will now search transit remand and produce him to Kanpur.

The police idea of the arrest, in the meantime, has a number of loopholes.

Temple officers admit on situation of anonymity, that Vikas Dubey disclosed his title on the counter the place he was giving cash for donation after which requested them to tell the police.

Dubey apparently di not use any disguise to evade the police and neither did he have any arms since weapons are prohibited within the temple complicated.

“This is a pre-planned surrender because it seems too simple to be true. Vikas had successfully eluded the police in three states for one week and it is rather unusual that he would enter a temple without a mask and get arrested. He knew that he would be shot dead if he gave himself up to UP police,” mentioned a retired DGP.

Another senior police official admitted that the arrest/ give up appears extraordinarily properly deliberate.

“The gangster wanted to surrender in a ‘safe state’. He did not go to court because of police presence and, therefore, chose the temple. Unless the police decide to make another mistake, Vikas Dubey will not be harmed physically now,” he mentioned.

Dubey had been eluding the police for the reason that previous one week and although 4 dozen groups of Special Task Force and state police have been chasing him, they may not nab him.

Five associates of Vikas Dubey have been shot lifeless in UP after the killing of eight policemen final week.

Two of his associates, Prem Prakash Pandey and Atul Dubey have been shot lifeless on Friday, hours after the bloodbath. Amar Dubey was shot lifeless on Wednesday in Hamirpur and Prabhat and Bauan Dubey have been shot lifeless in Kanpur and Etawah respectively on Thursday morning.

All of them have been reportedly concerned within the shootout.

Dubey’s arrest is a serious setback to the UP Special Task Force that did not nail the gangster. The STF, which had been claiming until late on Wednesday that Dubey was hiding in Delhi-NCR, was blissfully unaware that he had moved throughout to Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. There is a distance of 773 kilometres from Faridabad the place Dubey was reportedly seen final on Tuesday and Ujjain the place he lastly ‘surrendered’.

The STF, which has killed 5 accomplices of Vikas Dubey prior to now seven days, has put out a strikingly comparable idea for all of the encounters – “we tried to stop them, they opened fire and were killed in retaliatory firing”.
