Besides launching dragnet for the arrest of hardened criminal and murderer Vikas Dubey, the Uttar Pradesh police have decided to demolish the gangster’s house in Bithur. The demolition of Dubey’s house in the Kanpur district is currently underway.
In addition to the bulldozing of his residence in Bithur, the police have employed several teams to raid different areas in search of Vikas Dubey. These places are residences of Dubey’s relatives and family members and the police believe that Dubey might be hiding at one of the places. On these lines, a team raided Vikas Dubey’s house in Lucknow. The house situated in Indralok Colony in Krishnanagar area was one of the places of residence for fugitive Vikas Dubey.
However, police did not find anyone except a servant at the aforesaid location. Following a thorough search and impounding pen drives from the location, the police raided the house of Deep, Vikas’s brother, located nearby. The police found a revolver from Deep’s wife. Though Deep’s wife claimed to possess a license to keep the gun, the police have launched an investigation to ascertain if the claims made by her are true.
Meanwhile, the police who had gone to Deep’s house found that even he is absconding following the incident in which 8 policemen were ambushed and killed by his brother Vikas. Deep’s mobile phone is switched off.
As many as 12 people have been detained in the case for questioning. The police have also not discounted the possibility that Dubey might have fled to Nepal and so Lakhimpur Kheri district police are also set on high-alert.
