LokMarg speaks to former Director General of Police Vikram Singh about the reason behind rise of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey and the ‘police encounter’ that ended his crime run. Singh feels corruption and caste are the real culprit behind rise of criminals in the state, and the likes of Vikas Dubey are present in every block and district of UP.
In this interview, he also slams the candle-holding civil society members who question each and every police encounter, saying that killer of a policeman, in every society and nation across the world, does not survive long.
What I find baffling abt d #SohrabuddinCase verdict is Judge SJ Sharma trying to make excuses for the #CBI not being able to establish its case. “Witnesses going hostile is not in the hands of the CBI” “CBI prosecutor tried his best”. Imperative to guard agency rep too, eh?
After exoneration of #BJP president Amit Shah and 15 others in the #SohrabuddinCase in round one, special #CBI court today acquitted 22 others in round two. All stands freed in the three encounter killings of Sheikh, his wife Kausar Bi & aide Prajapati in 2005.
The CBI said Shaikh, an alleged gangster, Kausar Bi and Prajapati were abducted by the Gujarat Police from a bus when they were going to Sangli in Maharashtra from Hyderabad on the night of November 22-23, 2005.
Shaikh was killed in an alleged fake encounter on November 26, 2005, near Ahmedabad, while his wife was killed three days later and her body disposed of, the CBI had said.
It said that a year later, on December 27, 2006, Prajapati was also shot dead by the Gujarat and Rajasthan Police in an alleged fake encounter near Chapri on the Gujarat-Rajasthan border.
