Vikas Dubey.

New Delhi, July 10 : On a day that Kanpur gangster Vikas Dubey was killed in a police encounter, a majority of people surveyed in the IANS-CVoter Snap Poll was of the view that if he had undergone a trial, the slain policeman would have got some justice.

India woke up on Friday to the news of Dubey being killed in an encounter with the Uttar Pradesh Police while he was being brought back to Kanpur from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

The snap poll posed a question on if Dubey had undergone a court trial instead of being killed, would the slain policemen and victims have gotten justice.

Among the 1,500 respondents in the poll, 29.6 per cent answered that they trust to a great extent that they could get justice through courts while 24.9 per cent respondents said they could trust to some extent that they could get justice through courts. In aggregate, the number of respondents who feel that justice was possible is around 54.5 per cent, which forms the majority in the poll.

On the other hand, a substantial chunk or 45.5 per cent respondents said that they have no trust that they could get justice through courts.

Dubey was gunned down by UP STF early morning on Friday in Kanpur. The police said that Dubey tried to run away after the vehicle in which he was travelling with the police party overturned. A day before Prabhat, another close aide of Dubey was gunned down by UP Police after he was arrested from Haryana”s Faridabad. UP Police said that Prabhat tried to flee after the tyre of the vehicle burst. However, questions are being raised on back to back encounters.

Many believe that Dubey would have been instrumental in unearthing the network between gangsters, politicians and policemen. His encounter death also abruptly brought a full stop to the possibility of exposing the nexus.

An IANS-CVoter Snap Poll done on Thursday had a clear view that Dubey”s arrest was a surrender and also highlighted the “inefficiency” of the Uttar Pradesh Police.

On a question in the survey as to what does the arrest of Vikas Dubey in Ujjain prove, almost two thirds, or 66.7 per cent, of the respondents said that this shows UP Police’s inefficiency.

The remaining 33 per cent said this does not show the inefficiency of the UP Police.

Respondents also believed overwhelmingly that Dubey surrendered. To a question whether it was the Madhya Pradesh Police which was on alert and nabbed gangster Vikas Dubey or you think he himself went for a surrender because he was afraid of an encounter, 84.8 per cent of the respondents said that Dubey surrendered himself because he was afraid of an encounter. Only 15.2 per cent said that Madhya Pradesh Police was on alert and duly nabbed him.

New Delhi, Aug 13 (IANS) Heavy rains lashed Delhi on Thursday morning, bringing down the capital’s rain deficiency for the monsoon season to the lowest in 10 years. The downpour, which was reportedly the heaviest spell of rains this monsoon, resulted in water-logging at several places. Traffic too was disrupted and commuters struggled.

“Due to heavy rains, a drain has been damaged near Khaira village T-point on Dhansa road where underground metro work is going on. Traffic movement has been closed on 200 meters stretch of that portion of Dhansa road,” the Delhi Traffic police said.

Diversion of heavy traffic including buses and goods vehicles was done from Rawta village mod on main Dhansa road. The diverted traffic has to take the Rawta mod – Ujjawa village – Gumenhera village -Khaira village road to reach the Najafagarh phirni road.

Due to continuous rains, water-logging was also reported at Chhatta Rail, Kela Ghat, IP flyover, Minto Road, Bakoli Khampur, Mundka Nangloi, Mayapuri flyover, Raja Garden flyover, roundabout at Mandi House and Guru Nanak Chowk.

Traffic was also affected after a tree fell on the road in front of the Delhi High Court complex. Commuters had to wait near Pul Prahladpur underpass as water-logging made it difficult for motorists and pedestrians to cross the stretch.
