Three cops suspended on allegation of involvement with Vikas Dubey

In the ongoing case of Vikas Dubey, Fifty policemen from three stations had gone to the village in search of a politically-connected, wanted gangster – Vikas Dubey. He is charged with 60 criminal cases including murder, kidnapping, and extortion and rioting.

In the latest updates of Vikas Dubey’s case, Authorities in Uttar Pradesh on Monday suspended three more police officers over allegations that they were in regular contact with Vikas Dubey.

Two sub-inspectors Kunwar Pal and KK Sharma and constable Rajeev of Chaubeypur police station were among those who have been suspended said Dinesh Kumar P, Kanpur’s senior superintendent of police.

Their calls records were inspected thoroughly before they were suspended. They said the process to terminate them from service would soon begin.

They are under investigation for leaking the information about the raid said officials.

Dubey’s aide, Daya Shankar Agnihotri who was arrested on Sunday, said in a video statement that a caller from a police station informed Vikas Dubey about the raid.

The Uttar Pradesh police are investigating a letter reportedly written by the officer who led the raid on notorious gangster Vikas Dubey on Friday and was killed along with seven other cops. A top officer has asked for a thorough inquiry about the letter, which, if found and verified, could be damning evidence of policemen helping the criminal.
