Plea in Supreme Court for SIT probe into killing of gangster Vikas Dubey

New Delhi, July 11

The People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) today moved the Supreme Court seeking a special investigation team (SIT)-monitored probe into the killing of Vikas Dubey and his associates.

It filed an application in a petition already filed by it in 2018 that questioned police encounters in Uttar Pradesh between January 2017 and March 2018. Now, it wants encounter killing of Dubey and his associates Amar Dubey and Prabhat Mishra probed as well.

This is the second plea filed in the apex court on this issue. Hours before Vikas Dubey was killed in an encounter near Kanpur on Friday morning, advocate Ghanshyam Upadhyay filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the UP Government to ensure the gangster’s safety as he apprehended cops might kill him. He had sought urgent listing of the matter.

Both matters are likely to be taken up on Monday.
