Vikas Dubey.

Lucknow, July 6 : 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.

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.

The state police, meanwhile, found an abandoned dark grey Ford EcoSport car on the highway near Aurraiyya on Sunday with an ignition key in place and ownership papers in the dashboard. The police suspect that the car may have been used by the gangster to get away after committing the crime on Friday.

The police have also found three black luxury cars abandoned in Kakadeo police circle in Kanpur.

The cars, apparently new, did not have registration number plates on them. The vehicles have been seized by the police.

An investigation has revealed that the cars were purchased by a local businessman Jai Bajpai but registered under different names.

The Audi car seized was registered in the name of Pramod Vishwakarma, a Bhartiya Yuva Janata Morcha (BYJM) leader, a Fortuner was in the name of one Rahul Singh and the third vehicle was in the name of one Kapil Singh.

Bajpai has been detained and is being interrogated. He could not explain why he had purchased the vehicles in the name of others.

A photograph of the businessman with Vikas Dubey at a birthday party has gone viral on the social media. Bajpai said that after the photograph wet viral, he became apprehensive and parked the cars at a lonely spot. Bajpai, police sources said, was close to Annu Awasthi, a social media star.

Earlier, on Friday evening, a white Bolero had been found abandoned in Etawah and it was also presumed that the vehicle was used by criminals to flee.

Another Ford car was recovered near Aurraiyya-Dibiyapur bypass. Documents recovered from the car, bearing a Lucknow registration number, shows it belonged to one Amit Dubey.

Three identity cards, a wallet, ID of an elite Lucknow school and an expensive footwear were found in the car, which are now being scanned by the forensics team along with finger print experts.

The vehicle, which is 59-months-old, is without an insurance cover or pollution certificate.

“The words, ”Pravakta Hindu Organization” are scribbled on the rear mirror,” said a police official.

BSF Jawan Tripura

Guwahati/Agartala/Aizawl, Aug 10 : As coronavirus spreads across the northeast, nearly 3,800 central security force personnel have so far infected by the disease in almost all the states in the region, officials said on Sunday.

According to the health officials, the eight northeastern states have so far recorded around 75,000 Covid-19 cases, including 57,714 in Assam.

Of the 3,800 Covid cases among the central armed forces personnel, the highest number are in Nagaland, at 1,226, followed by 823 in Manipur, 738 in Arunachal Pradesh, 360 in Tripura, 350 in Mizoram and 300 in Meghalaya. Many of their family members, including children, were also infected.

A significant chunk of the coronavirus patients among the central forces are from the Border Security Force (BSF). Two BSF jawans in Tripura and one in Meghalaya also succumbed to the highly infectious virus.

Many Indian Army, Indian Air Force, and National Disaster Response Force personnel have also tested positive for coronavirus.

Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga even made a plea to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure suspension of Central Paramilitary Forces (CPMF) movement into the state till August 31, noting that around 70 per cent of Covid-19 positive cases in the state are from the military and paramilitary forces.

A senior BSF official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told IANS that the BSF men and other central force personnel, after completion of their leave period or when they are transferred, have to move by train or by air for their destinations from different parts of the country. “During transit or in their hazardous duties along the borders or various vulnerable places, the jawans come in contact with the dreaded virus,” the official said.

As the eight northeastern states share over 5,000 km of borders with China, Myanmar Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal and some are also battling against terrorism, there is a heavy deployment of armed forces as well as central paramilitary forces in the region.
