Uttar Pradesh criminal Vikas Dubey was arrested and detained on Thursday morning. he was caught outside the Mahakal Temple in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. The criminal was involved in the extensive butchering of eight police personnel, the incident took place on 2nd July. Prabhat Mishra and Bahua Dubey, two aides of gangster Vikas Dubey were killed concurrent to his arrest.
“Main Vikas Dubey hoon, Kanpur wala,” he exclaimed whilst being taken to the police van, as per a CCTV footage.
On 8th July, Vikas Dubey’s accomplice Amar Dubey was encountered and on the same day, CCTV footage from a hotel in Haryana’s Faridabad showed a masked man suspected to be Dubey. However, he fled the premises before the police could capture him.
Vikas Dubey’s mother, Sarla Devi confirmed that he visuals the Ujjain Mahakal Temple every year. It was around 7 a.m. today when he was trying to enter a temple with a ‘Fake ID card’ of a much younger man. He apparently tried to enter through the back gate when a shopkeeper recognised him and alerted the security guards. On being interrogated, he smacked the guards who succeeded to drag him to the police.
The iniquitous criminal charged in 60 criminal instances which includes murder, kidnapping, extortion and rioting – had allegedly been alerted to the raid by local policemen and had installed an ambush. When the policemen reached the Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur to arrest Vikas Dubey, Dubey and his men, armed with AK-47s, fired from rooftops causing a bloodbath.
“Those who feel that their sins will be dusted by going to the shelter of Mahakal, they have not known Mahakal,” Mr Chouhan tweeted. “Congratulations to the Ujjain police for the arrest of Vikas Dubey,” he said.
“Dubey will be brought to the state on transit remand. Our campaign against all those involved in the Kanpur case will continue till not even a single member of the Dubey gang is left,” ADG, Law and Order Prashant Kumar said. “Stricter punishment will be ensured against Dubey,” he added
“It is a big success for the police, Vikas Dubey was a pitiless executioner. The whole Madhya Pradesh police drive was on alarm. He has been captured from Ujjain Mahakal sanctuary. We have informed Uttar Pradesh Police,” said Narottam Mishra, Madhya Pradesh Minister. Madhya Pradesh Chief Serve Shivraj Singh Chouhan said he was in touch with his UP partner Yogi Adityanath on the capture and the criminal would be given over to the UP police.
‘A big success’ or a ‘successfully staged surrender-arrest’?
UP Police has their neck on the line after the series of fiascos that took place along with emerging conspiracies on the whole ‘catch-and-catch’ episode, here’s how:
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav raised questions around whether it was a capture or surrender. “We listen that the most wanted of the Kanpur-Kand is presently in police care. On the off chance that genuine, at that point the government ought to clarify whether this was a yield or capture. Moreover, his call records ought to be made open so the nexus can be uncovered,” the previous UP Chief Serve tweeted.
“We couldn’t capture him (Vikas Dubey) indeed after such a tremendous occurrence and he kept voyaging around for five days. This ought to be examined,” tweeted Amitabh Thakur, an Indian Police Benefit (IPS) officer posted in Uttar Pradesh.
Prabhat Mishra, in the interim, was taken in remand from Faridabad on Wednesday when police struck the premises of lodging after its CCTV film appeared a conceal man suspected to be Vikas Dubey. Agreeing to the police, they were bringing Mishra to Kanpur on travel remand when their vehicle had a level tire. Amid this time, the blamed supposedly attempted to escape and was shot dead.

Bahraich Administrator of Police Vipin Mishra had said there were inputs that Vikas Dubey may escape to Nepal. In like manner, a serious manhunt has been propelled within the Indo-Nepal border zone in coordination with Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) faculty and in wilderness regions on the border with Forest Department authorities, he said.
Another opprobrium was instigated by the ‘warrantless’ arrest of Sharjeel Usmani by the UP Police in Azamgarh on Wednesday:
Several voices erupted when the ‘Law Enforcers’ failure to arrest Vikas Dubey became conspicuous right after when Anti-CAA Activist and Aligarh Muslim University student Sharjeel Usmani was taken under a ‘warrantless’ arrest by the long arms of the law. It has been asserted that the deliberate performative proxy arrest was just an opportunistic stunt of ‘kidnapping’ and ‘witch-hunting’ student activists by the UP Police that has caused Justice Obstruction.
As per an Amar Ujala report, Sharjeel Usmani was captured by an Anti-Terror Squad group from Lucknow. He has allegedly been booked for affectation anti-CAA, NRC nonconformists and conveying incendiary discourses.
