Mumbai: Soon after gangster Vikas Dubey was killed in an encounter by the Uttar Pradesh Police on Friday, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asked “what about those who help the culprit”.
“The criminal is dead, but what about those who aided the criminal?” the Congress leader tweeted (translated from Hindi).
अपराधी का अंत हो गया, अपराध और उसको सरंक्षण देने वाले लोगों का क्या?

Vikas Dubey, the main accused in the Kanpur encounter, was killed in an encounter with police on Friday.
Dubey, the main accused in the Kanpur encounter case, was arrested by the police in Ujjain on Thursday morning. He was absconding for the last several days and came to worship at the temple in Ujjain, where he was identified by a security guard in the temple.
The gangster is the main accused in an encounter in Bekaru village of Chaubepur area of Kanpur last week, in which a group of attackers allegedly opened fire on the police team that arrested Dubey. Eight police personnel were killed in the encounter.
Dubey managed to escape and the Uttar Pradesh police started the hunt and increased the reward to Rs 5 lakh.
