Earlier yesterday, two gangsters who were working closely with Vikas Dubey were shot dead by the Uttar Pradesh police in two separate encounters. One of them was Prabhat Mishra who was also called Kartikeya was arrested by the Special Task Force. He was being brought to Kanpur. The Special Task Force official said,

“Our vehicle was in the Panki area in Kanpur when it developed a snag. As the vehicle was being repaired, Prabhat Mishra tried to snatch the pistol of an inspector and opened fire at the STF team. He was shot dead in retaliatory firing.”

Supreme Court advocate Prashant Bhushan reacted to the encounter and questioned the UP government. He wrote,


“Vikas Dubey killed 8 UP police & escaped. He roamed 4 states in the next 5 days, then surrendered publicly in Ujjain temple to avoid being ‘encounter’. After UP police got hold of him, their car carrying him overturns & he is ‘encountered’! So he doesn’t reveal nexus with top politicos.”
