Opposition Parties Corner Yogi Govt Over Gangster Vikas Dubey's 'Encounter' Killing
Vikas Dubey, the main accused in the Kanpur ambush in which 8 policemen were killed, surrendered in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh on Thursday. Yet, on Friday morning, the Uttar Pradesh Police shot dead Dubey while he allegedly tried to escape while in custodial transit to Kanpur. While the Yogi government and the police are getting accolades from some quarters on Dubey's killing, Opposition parties have raised serious doubts over the 'encounter'.
Former UP CM and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav took a shot on the Yogi Govt over the alleged encounter in a tweet.

The manner in which Vikas Dubey was arrested on Thursday morning, even then many opposition parties raised questions on the entire development.
