Ever since the encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey, several of his old videos suddenly flooded social media. One such recent video being that of him walking out from a jail and people welcoming him with, "Sher humara choot gaya, jail ka tala tut gaya."
According to a report by News18, the video was shot in 2019 when Vikas Dubey was released from Mati Jail. Many people waited outside the jail to welcome the infamous gangster with some shouting slogans like "Jindabad" and "Sher humara choot gaya, jail ka tala tut gaya."
Dubey was arrested by the Madhya Pradesh Police in Ujjain on July 9. He was on the run and had come to the city to offer prayers at the Mahakal temple. Dubey was killed in an encounter by the Uttar Pradesh Police on July 10 after he "attempted to flee" from police custody.
The gangster was the main accused in the encounter that took place in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur, in which a group of assailants opened fire on a team of policemen, which had gone to arrest him. Eight police personnel were killed in the crossfire.
Meanwhile, on Monday, Supreme Court said that it is a "failure of the institution" that a person like Vikas Dubey got bail despite several cases lodged against him. The apex court asked Uttar Pradesh government to consider having a former apex court judge and a retired police officer in the inquiry committee probing the encounter of the gangster.
"This is the failure of the institution and the person, who should have been behind the bars, got bail," a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde said, adding, "We are appalled to the fact that a person like Vikas Dubey got bail despite so many cases." The bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, told the Uttar Pradesh government that they have to "uphold rule of law".Vikas Dubey encounter: Court overrides UP decision on inquiry committee, asks it to include a former apex court judge and a retired police officer
