No, BJP leader Vikas Dubey is not the gangster who killed 8 policemen in Kanpur, read how Congress trolls spread fake news

The gangster Vikas Dubey was, in fact, associated with BSP. His wife had fought local body elections on an SP ticket.

Hours after eight Uttar Pradesh policemen were killed by a notorious gangster Vikas Dubey near Kanpur, there has been a barrage of misinformation being peddled by people associated with the Congress party and other trolls on social media claiming that the gangster Dubey had connections with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Several trolls took to social media to share an image of a BJP leader along with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to claim that the person was the notorious gangster Vikas Dubey, to allege that he belonged to BJP.

A social media user named Vinod, allegedly a Congress party worker took to Twitter to insinuate that the gangster had a close relationship with Yogi Adityanath.

Affan, shared an image of BJP President JP Nadda with an individual, to whom he referred to as Vikas Dubey to claim that the party had ‘deep connections’ with the gangster, who killed eight Uttar Pradesh policemen and injured six other in a gunfight on Thursday night.

Another troll named Ashfaqulla Khan claimed that Vikas Dubey, an upper caste hindu, who killed 60 policemen, was supported by BJP.

Fact check:

The images passed by the Congress party workers and Islamists claiming that the person standing next to Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and BJP President JP Nadda is Vikas Dubey, the gangster, is a blatant lie.

The person in the viral images is also named Vikas Dubey, who is a senior BJP leader in the state. He has been associated with the BJYM too and is a popular leader from Bundelkhand.

Vikas Dubey, the BJP leader, himself had to post a Facebook post to ask people not to spread false rumours and appealed on his Facebook page requesting people to be alert against fake news.

In his Facebook post, Dubey wrote in Hindi stating, “Be alert against fake news. There are some people who are spreading false information on social media instead of honouring the policemen. They are passing off my photos to malign me and the party.”

The viral picture of Vikas Dubey along with UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was uploaded on Dubey’s Facebook page on November 15, 2019.

Gangster Dubey was a former BSP member, wife belongs to Samajwadi Party

Contrary to the claim made by social media users that Vikas Dubey belonged to BJP, the notorious gangster had, in fact, was a member of Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP). Vikas Dubey, a former Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader, was also elected as a member of the Nagar Panchayat.

According to journalist Sushant Sinha, Vikas Dubey’s wife Richa Dubey had contested on a Samajwadi Party ticket in one of the Zilla Panchayat elections. A poster of Vikas Dubey and his wife seeking votes for the elections has become viral now, in which Samajwadi Party leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav’s images were seen along with the images of Vikas Dubey and his wife.
