Lucknow: Even as gangster Vikas Dubey continues to elude the state police, the Uttar Pradesh police has stepped up its efforts to nab the man who is the main accused in the killing of eight police personnel in Kanpur on Friday.
While vigil has been stepped up on the borders of the state to prevent the gangster from moving out, a series of abandoned cars-probably used as getaway vehicles by Dubey, have queered the pitch for investigators.
The Uttar Pradesh police have alerted their counterparts in adjoining states since it is believed that the gangster could be in hiding anywhere there.
Posters of Vikas Dubey have been put up in all adjoining district and along the UP-Nepal borders.
According to official sources, the Pilibhit police has sounded a high alert on the Indo-Nepal border in a bid to foil the gangster’s possible attempt to escape to Nepal through the perforated border with the district.
Pilibhit superintendent of police Jai Prakash Yadav said that besides sealing the borders, the police are carrying out intensive search of vehicles and individuals.
The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), too, has alerted its personnel guarding the border.
Deputy commandant, 49th Battalion, Raman Singh said, “For the identification of Dubey, we have circulated his photographs among our personnel.”
“Police are keeping a tight vigil on all suspected persons and vehicles. Police and the SSB are keeping a vigil on all activities on the border, though most of the border stretch is not conducive for travel at present due to Sharda river being in spate,” said Singh.
Meanwhile, the state government, on Monday, suspended inspector Kunwar Pal and constables K.K. Sharma and Rajiv after the call details revealed that the three were in touch with Vikas Dubey.
