In the tweet below you can see the injured policemen who were supposedly injured in the shootout.
In the video below, however, you can watch, police stopping media from following the police convoy which was carrying Vikas Dubey. A policeman can be seen wearing bandage even before the encounter took place.
In this video, Vikas Dubey can be seen in Tata Safari car going through a toll booth just before the encounter took place. The car that was claimed to be carrying Vikas Dubey, the one that was involved in the accident, however, is Mahindra TUV 300.
All this seems like a movie plot where the cops were full of vengeance after the murder of their colleagues and wanted to do the same to the gangster. Why would a criminal who had surrendered himself run away with policeman’s gun? Why would the media be stopped before the encounter? How can two people involved in the shooting be killed at the same spot on different days? The change of the car in the story? The sequence of events all points to it being a planned encounter and media being stopped before the shooting almost confirms it.
Vikas Dubey did not deserve to live after killing 8 policemen but the manner of his demise not only tarnishes the credibility of police but also brings an air of relief for many politicians involved with this criminal. With no Vikas Dubey, there is nothing for them to be afraid of and there will be business as usual from today onwards.
Dead men tell no tales
