‘Khadi, Khaki & Underworld’ Nexus Behind Vikas Dubey’s Brazen Attack in Kanpur?

Vikas Dubey, a history-sheeter with up to 60 criminal cases against him, escapes from his hideout as his goons kill eight Uttar Pradesh police personnel in Bikru village in rural Kanpur.

After the incident, the police suspends Station Officer Vinay Tiwari, for his alleged role in tipping-off Dubey. His aide Daya Shankar Agnihotri, who is arrested in the encounter, tells the police that Dubey had purportedly received a phone call, and so before the cops could reach Bikru village to raid his hideout and arrest him, he allegedly called around his men.

The police are then ambushed by the goons who are expecting them and the whole encounter turns into a blood bath.

This incident from 2 July sounds like a movie plot, but in fact it's the other way round. Movies are inspired from this kind of reality in the state of Uttar Pradesh where the nexus between crime and politics runs thicker than blood.

What is responsible for such daring acts of crimes in the state? Why hasn’t Uttar Pradesh been able to root out notorious criminals like Dubey? Tune in to The Big Story!
