LUCKNOW: A day after gangster
was gunned down in an encounter near Kanpur, the STF team that brought him from Ujjain to UP claimed that the don was taken from one police station to another on a motorcycle after his arrest at Mahakaal temple and that he tried to escape on two occasions while being ferried.
The MP police, however, denied that Dubey was brought to the police station on a motorcycle or he made any escape bid.
A senior officer in the STF who was a part of the team constituted to bring Dubey to UP said: “Cops asked us to come at a police station in Ujjain but when we reached there, we were informed that Dubey had been kept at another police station. They asked us to wait. We saw a constable leaving on a motorcycle to bring Dubey.”
“When Dubey reached, he got off the motorcycle and tried to run away. When my team and MP cops caught him, he started abusing us,” he said.
Later, Dubey was taken in an SUV with proper security as per protocol and legal procedures, he said.
“We stopped near Shivpuri (MP) to check tyre air pressure and Dubey again tried to escape. But this time he was nabbed by the STF team,” he added.
A police officer at Shivpuri denied the claim that Vikas tried to escape.
