July 08, 2020: Amar Dubey, a close aide of wanted gangster Vikas Dubey, was shot dead by Uttar Pradesh police in an encounter in Hamirpur on Wednesday. Amar was a history-sheeter and a wanted criminal. Amar was killed in an encounter by Special Task Force of Uttar Pradesh police. Amar was the personal bodyguard of Vikas Dubey and he always used to carry weapons.

Amar was an accused in the Kanpur case in which eight cops were killed by Vikas Dubey and his men. Amar was also a wanted criminal in several other cases.

Amar was trying to escape to Madhya Pradesh when he was ntercepted by the STF.

The breakthrough came when one of the STF teams tracking leads on Vikas Dubey and his gang members managed to intercept Amar Dubey in Maudaha area of Hamirpur a little after daybreak, said ADG law and order Prashant Kumar.

Vikas Dubey is wanted in the killing of eight policemen in Kanpur and has been on the run since Thursday last week. Amar Dubey was also reportedly involved in the incident, which has also revealed the alleged nexus between criminals and some moles in the police department who tipped them off about possible action against them.

Till date, three policemen have been suspended for their alleged involvement in tipping off Dubey ahead of the police raid in which eight cops lost their lives and seven were seriously injured. The suspended police personnel include two sub-inspectors and a constable. 

The UP Police is in touch with the Haryana Police in its man-hunt for Vikas Dubey and the search for the gangster has been intensified in Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
