Crowds Gather Around Encounter Spot, Some Take Selfies
Curious crowds hovered most of the day around the spot where Vikas Dubey was shot dead on Friday, even when all there was left to see were bluish smudges on a dirt road.

The smudges were blood stains that had changed colour, perhaps due to the rain and the forensic examination.

For part of the day, an overturned SUV could be seen on the highway to Kanpur. It was later towed away.

Police claimed that gangster Vikas Dubey, who was being brought back here after his arrest in Ujjain, got out of the car after it had overturned on the slippery road, taking along an injured policeman''s pistol.

Dubey, accused of killing eight policemen last week, then fled down a dirt road that joined the highway.

He was gunned down when he refused to surrender and opened fire at policemen who had surrounded him, according to the police version.The smudges marked that spot.

Flooded agricultural fields and bushes run along the dirt track. As curious onlookers from nearby villages headed there, the place became a selfie spot with people clicking pictures on their phones.

On the nearby highway, people peeped out of passing vehicles. As traffic choked the road, constable Anil Kumar Yadav asked people not to gather there, news agency PTI reported.

Tehseen Poonawalla Seeks NHRC's Intervention Into "Fake Encounter" Of Gangster Vikas Dubey
Political activist Tehseen Poonawalla on Friday urged the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to intervene into the alleged "fake encounter" of gangster Vikas Dubey and claimed that due process of law was not followed in the matter.

"I have filed a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission on the alleged fake encounter of Vikas Dubey this morning as part of a "script" to protect UP politicians, the Yogi Adityanath government and other Uttar Pradesh police officers," Poonawalla tweeted.

In the following tweet, Mr Poonawalla also urged the Supreme Court to take up the matter.

Vikas Dubey, who was arrested from Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain on Thursday, was killed in an encounter by the Uttar Pradesh Police after he allegedly attempted to flee.

In his complaint, Mr Poonawalla urged the NHRC to take cognisance of the encounter.

"There are already several complaints about the illegal and unconstitutional behaviour of the Uttar Pradesh Police before the court of law and Human Rights Commission. Giving a free hand to kill surrendered accused must have brutal consequences," the complaint said.

It said that five of Dubey's aides have been killed by the police over the last week.

"Dubey''s closest aide Aman Dubey was shot dead after he was chased down by the police to a village on July 5, 2020, and his other aide, Bauva Dubey, was shot dead in an encounter in Etawah, about 220 km from state capital Lucknow," the complaint said.

"Furthermore, hours before Vikas Dubey's surrender, two of his accomplices had been shot dead by UP Police in separate encounters. It is alleged that Vikas Dubey''s links with the police and politicians helped him stay out of jail for years. To avoid being encountered Vikas Dubey came forward and surrendered himself publicly outside Mahakal temple in Ujjain," it added.

The complaint also alleged that the media, which were following the police car were "mysteriously stopped" just before the encounter, and questioned how the vehicle they were travelling in topple on a perfectly good road.

"How did Vikas Dubey a physically unfit man with a paunch escape after pushing physically fit police officers to get out of a toppled vehicle particularly because the accused is always seated in the middle," Mr Poonawalla asked in the plea, news agency ANI reported.

Dubey is the main accused in the Kanpur encounter case, in which he and his men allegedly opened fire on the police team which came to arrest him on July 2 late night. Eight policemen were killed in the encounter.

5 big questions on cops' version of Vikas Dubey's death in encounter

The police version of the killing of gangster Vikas Dubey has raised five important questions about the early morning encounter. Videos and witness accounts have underlined the questions that, so far, have no answers from the police. Read full story here

The incident begs these questions:

  1. Why was Vikas Dubey's car switched? Hours before the encounter, a video at a toll plaza at 4 AM showed him in a different car, not the one that overturned.
  2. Why was the media, which had been following the police convoy, stopped 2 km from the site where the accident and encounter took place?
  3. Eyewitnesses say they heard gunshots but don't mention any accident. They say they were asked by the police to leave.
  4. Why was a dangerous criminal charged in 60 cases including murder not handcuffed? The police say when the car overturned, Vikas Dubey managed to steal a gun, climb out and run.
  5. The car overturned at a point where there was no barrier and there was a side road into the fields, the one that Vikas Dubey took while running away, according to the police.
