Since eight policemen lost their lives in an ambush set up by gangster Vikas Dubey, the Police department is searching for the mole who might have informed him about the raid. There are more than 60 known criminal cases registered in the last 28 years on Dubey. However, he managed not to appear in the top ten criminals in his area. The investigation has revealed that there might be a chance that the cops helped him on caste lines.
At present, there are around 30 policemen under investigation led by the UP Special Task Force. The investigators found that they were in constant touch with Dubey. Kanpur IG Mohit Agarwal said in his statement that all the policemen of the local police station are under the scope of their investigation on how Vikas Dubey got the information about police movement. He added, “Services of cops in league with him will be terminated and they will face a criminal trial.”
