In what could be termed as a shocking crime in Kanpur, police officials were attacked by miscreants, allegedly because they attempted to arrest the infamous historysheeter Vikas Dubey.
The incident reportedly occurred in Bikru village where police had gone to arrest the gangster. It is being told that Vikas Dubey had got information before the police raid, his accomplice Daya Shankar Agnihotri has revealed. Following the incident, police launched an investigation on how gangster Vikas Dubey got the information about the raid at his house.
Meanwhile, Gangster Vikas Dubey’s brother-in-law Gyanendra Nigam (46), and his son were picked by special task force (STF) of Uttar Pradesh police with assistance from Madhya Pradesh cops from Shahdol, 592 kilometres east of Bhopal on Wednesday, police said.
Dubey’s brother-in-law Gyanendra Nigam revealed that he had no connection with his sister Richa Nigam and brother-in-law Vikas. There is no talk of development for 10-15 years. Vikas drove Richa away in 1997 and forcibly married her.
Gyanendra further said that Vikas had captured his Kanpur house. With great difficulty, he managed to regain possession.
