The dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey who was arrested yesterday by the Uttar Pradesh police in connection with killing 8 policemen was killed in an encounter on Friday morning.
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.”
Responding to Prashant Bhushan, Delhi BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga wrote,
“PIL daal le, tera to Dhandha hai ye (File A PIL. It’s your job.)”
