Vikas Dubey flees Faridabad hotel; aide shot

Vikas Dubey (R) with Amar Dubey

Gurugram/Kanpur, July 8

An alleged aide of gangster Vikas Dubey was killed and six others arrested in separate operations even as a raid to nab the fugitive, the main accused in last week’s Kanpur ambush that left eight policemen dead, from a hotel in Haryana’s Faridabad proved futile.

This even as suspended Chaubeypur station officer Vinay Tiwari and another cop were held for leaking information to Dubey of last week’s police raid. In UP’s Hamirpur district, gangster’s alleged accomplice Amar Dubey, carrying a reward of Rs 50,000, was shot in a firefight. Sources said Amar looked after Dubey’s security.

In Faridabad, Dubey was reportedly seen at a hotel, but escaped before the cops reached there. Dubey tried to check in using a fake ID. CCTV footage showed him inside the hotel and later on the roadside. He earlier reportedly took refuge at the house of a relative, Shravan, in the city. Shravan, son Ankur have been arrested along with Dubey’s aide Kartikey. Shravan later tested positive for Covid. — TNS/PTI
