INDORE/BHOPAL/LUCKNOW: Terming the arrest of gangster Vikas Dubey at Ujjain’s Mahakaal temple “an arranged surrender”, Congress on Thursday questioned how the country’s most-wanted fugitive managed to travel 1,200km across four states over six days to reach MP’s temple town and be “caught not by police but by a temple security guard”.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took to Twitter to allege political “collusion” in Dubey’s escape from UP after killing eight cops in a guerrilla-style ambush on July 3 and his arrest on Thursday. She demanded a CBI probe to “expose the nexus that was protecting Dubey”. “UP government has failed to act with the promptness that was required (to deal with) heinous Kanpur killings. The fact that he reached Ujjain despite the alert exposes the claims of security and indicates a collusion,” Priyanka tweeted.

MP home minister Narottam Mishra hit back by accusing Congress of “demoralising the Army and police”. Former UP CM and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav slammed BJP for failing to ensure Dubey’s arrest within the state.
