July 09, 2020 (New Delhi) UP’s dreadful gangster Vikas Dubey’s arrest raised several questions about his whereabouts including how he ended up at a temple in Ujjain’s Mahakal temple five days after the killing of eight cops in Uttar Pradesh.
Vikas Dubey arrived at the famous Mahakal temple on Thursday morning and was identified when he was reportedly trying to enter through the back gate after buying prayer offerings from a shop.
The criminal had reportedly traveled 700 km by road from Faridabad in Haryana through Rajasthan’s Kota to Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh in a car with a UP number plate.
“We had caught many of his associates and a few were killed. So definitely he was trying to save his life and on the run,” said Mohit Aggarwal, Inspector General, Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said the Yogi Adityanath government in UP should clarify whether Vikas Dubey surrendered or was arrested.
Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra asserted that Vikas Dubey was arrested, he did not surrender. “He entered Madhya Pradesh via Rajasthan’s Kota in a car with two aides, Bittu and Suresh. He used a fake ID with the last name ‘Paul’,” he said.
