Kanpur: Leaders from several opposition parties have alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government is hiding "a deep secret" with regard to the killing of Kanpur encounter main accused Vikas Dubey on Friday.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah also posted on the encounter.
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh further went on to question the encounter and said that why were all three encounters "the same". He also asked the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for a judicial inquiry into the arrest or surrender of Dubey.
यह पता लगाना आवश्यक है विकास दुबे ने मध्यप्रदेश के उज्जैन महाकाल मंदिर को सरेंडर के लिए क्यों चुना? मध्यप्रदेश के कौन से प्रभावशाली व्यक्ति के भरोसे वो यहाँ उत्तर प्रदेश पुलिस के एनकाउंटर से बचने आया था?— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) July 10, 2020
"I ask Shivraj ji for the judicial inquiry of the arrest/surrender of Vikas Dubey. The investigation must be done as to which politicians and police officials were in contact with him. Security of Vikas Dubey should have been ensured in judicial custody so that all the secrets could have been revealed. What we feared has happened," he said (translated from Hindi).
जिसका शक था वह हो गया। विकास दुबे का किन किन राजनैतिक लोगों से, पुलिस व अन्य शासकीय अधिकारियों से उसका संपर्क था, अब उजागर नहीं हो पाएगा। पिछले 3-4 दिनों में विकास दुबे के 2 अन्य साथियों का भी एनकाउंटर हुआ है लेकिन तीनों एनकाउंटर का पैटर्न एक समान क्यों है?— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) July 10, 2020
"Which political people, police, and other government officials were in contact with Vikas Dubey can no longer be exposed. In the last 3-4 days, two other colleagues of Vikas Dubey have also had encounters, but why is the pattern of the three encounters the same?" the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said.
With the end of Vikas Dubey in custody the govt has ensured that the trail which would have exposed his nexus with people in positions of power who allowed criminals like him to flourish, has ended too. https://t.co/QPCWXNxoIo— Jitin Prasada जितिन प्रसाद (@JitinPrasada) July 10, 2020
Congress leader Jitin Prasada also wrote on the microblogging site, and said, "With the end of Vikas Dubey in custody the govt has ensured that the trail which would have exposed his nexus with people in positions of power who allowed criminals like him to flourish, has ended too."
