Lucknow: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi on Friday raised questions on gangster Vikas Dubey's encounter killing after an accident, saying the criminal is dead. But what about crime and those who give protection to it.

Congress general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, “The criminal is dead, but what about those who aided the criminal.”

Earlier on Thursday, Priyanka Gandhi had demanded a CBI probe to ascertain the facts about the "grant of protection" to gangster Vikas Dubey.

Priyanka Gandhi had also accused the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh of "complete failure" in handling the Kanpur ambush case and arresting Dubey.

"The Uttar Pradesh government has completely failed in acting with alacrity in the ghastly Kanpur massacre. Despite an alert, the gangster reaching Ujjain exposes the chinks in security and points to collusion," she had said in a tweet in Hindi.

Dubey was killed in an encounter after a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot, police said.

Senior Superintendent of Police (Kanpur) Dinesh Kumar P said that the accident took place in the morning when it was raining heavily and the police vehicle overturned near Kanpur.

Eight policemen, including DSP Devendra Mishra, were ambushed in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest Dubey and fell to bullets fired from rooftops shortly after midnight on July 3.
