    LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav on Friday raised questions on gangster Vikas Dubey's encounter killing after an accident, saying the car did not topple but it was an effort to save the government from toppling if facts came to light. Dubey was killed in an encounter after a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot, police said.

    "Darasal ye car nahi palti, raj khulne se sarkar palatne se bach gayi hai," (Actually, the car did not topple. It is an effort to save the government which would have toppled if facts came to light)," Yadav said in a tweet in Hindi.

    Senior Superintendent of Police (Kanpur) Dinesh Kumar P said that the accident took place in the morning when it was raining heavily and the police vehicle overturned near Kanpur.

    Eight policemen, including DSP Devendra Mishra, were ambushed in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest Dubey and fell to bullets fired from rooftops shortly after midnight on July 3.

    Entire Yadav family including the senior most must be unhappy about the encounter as that means losing the most trusted lieutenant for the corrupt SP.

    had you been CM, you would have exonerated Dubey and made him a minister like dreaded don Raja Bhayya. UP police were brutally killed when they went to arrest him. They have had enough of these dons. Glad that Yogi is the CM of UP not corrupt Yadav. UP police must unearth all nefarious connections that Dubey had with SP and BSP and lock them in prison.
