Live Updates: UP Gangster Vikas Dubey Arrested At Madhya Pradesh Temple


New Delhi:

Uttar Pradesh gangster Vikas Dubey, who was behind the cold-blooded killing of eight policemen last week, was arrested from a temple in Madhya Pradesh after a nearly week-long chase involving the police across three states. He was caught in Ujjain around the same time two of his aides were killed in separate encounters in UP. His closest aide, Aman Dubey, was killed yesterday.

Vikas Dubey was seen buying prayer offerings at Mahakal temple around 8 am, according to the police. A shopkeeper recognized him and reportedly alerted security guards, they said. When he emerged from the temple, the guards questioned him.

He first tried to mislead them by producing a fake ID card of a much younger man. When prodded further, he hit out at the guards, who dragged him to the police station.

Eight policemen were killed on Friday when they went in a large team to arrest Dubey at his village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur.

Dubey – charged in 60 criminal cases including murder, kidnapping, extortion and rioting – had allegedly been alerted to the raid by local policemen and had set up an ambush. When the policemen reached the village, Dubey and his men, armed with AK-47s, fired from rooftops.

The notorious gangster escaped after the massacre. A massive hunt was launched and the bounty on him was raised to Rs 5 lakh.
