One of the vehicles of the convoy of Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) that was bringing back history-sheeter Vikas Dubey from Madhya Pradesh to Kanpur overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rains.
Gangster Vikas 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.
Dubey snatched the pistol of an STF personnel and tried to flee but was surrounded by the police team and he was injured in an exchange of fire.
Dubey was taken to the emergency ward of the Hallett Hospital in a blood-soaked condition and he was declared dead.
Five members of the Vikas Dubey gang have been killed in police encounters over the past seven days.
Dubey was arrested by the police in Ujjain on Thursday morning. He was on the run for the last six days and had come to Ujjain to offer prayers at Temple, where he was identified by a security guard at the shrine.
The gangster was the main accused in the encounter that took place in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur last week, in which a group of assailants allegedly opened fire on a police team, which had gone to arrest Dubey. Eight police personnel were killed in the encounter.
