Vikas Dubey's encounter not fake, UP police tells Supreme Court

New Delhi: After the death of Vikas Dubey, many questions are raised on UP Police, alleging it a ‘fake encounter.’ The UP Police have put an affidavit in Supreme Court in which they said, “the state authorities acted as per the law and Supreme Court guidelines" and this encounter was not a fake one.

On July 10, Vikas Dubey attempted to escape from the police custody after the car accident. The car was part of the Police convoy carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur. After Dubey snatched the gun from cops, he openly fired at policemen and in self defence he was shot dead. He was arrested one day earlier from Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh and he was coming to Kanpur for the court hearing.

The police said, asserting that they had tried to catch him alive. The Director-General of UP Police said in an affidavit, "Vikas Dubey's killing is not a fake encounter. His case cannot be compared with the Telangana encounter. While Telangana didn't order a judicial commission, the UP government has done so.”

“The state authorities acted as per law and Supreme Court guidelines. More facts will be filed later if time is given," he stated further. The commission of inquiry into the Vikas Dubey case is headed by a retired high court judge.
