Vikas Dubey, the history-sheeter accused of shooting dead eight policemen in Kanpur’s Bikru village last week, was on Friday morning killed in an alleged exchange of fire while being brought to Uttar Pradesh from Ujjain, the U.P. police said.

Dubey was shot twice after he allegedly attempted to flee from police custody after firing at the police team, a few kilometres ahead of Kanpur, police said. However, a medical report is still awaited.

Dubey was being escorted to Kanpur from Ujjain, where he was arrested 24 hours earlier near a temple, when one of the police vehicles overturned near Bhaunti, said police. The accused and the policemen got injured in the accident, they added.

Kanpur SP (West) Anil Kumar said Dubey took advantage of the road accident and tried to flee after snatching a pistol of an injured policeman. “The police surrounded him from all four sides and tried to make him surrender, but he fired at them. In self-defence, police fired two bullets [at Dubey], injuring him,” said Mr. Kumar.

Dubey had fired at the police team with an “intent to kill,” said police.

A stretcher bearing Dubey, with blood stains on his chest, was later seen being taken inside a hospital, where he was declared dead.

New Delhi: The High Court’s administrative and general supervision committee said that in view of the spread of the coronavirus in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, it has been decided to extend the suspended functioning of the court till August 31. “All the Benches of this Court would continue to take up and hear all the urgent matters through video conferencing. The Courts of Registrars and Joint Registrars of this Court shall take up the matters through video conferencing, where the files are already scanned. The evidence be recorded in ex-parte and uncontested matters where the same is required to be tendered by way of affidavit”, said an office order.

However, the High Court has said that subject to complete availability of public transport and subject to the situation in Delhi remaining stable, a plan would be evolved for gradual opening of physical courts from September 1 onwards.

“To begin with, on experimental basis, around one-fourth of the courts can resume physical functioning on a rotational basis while the rest can continue taking up matters through video conferencing. A comprehensive plan on the above lines will be prepared by the undersigned and placed before the “Committee for Preparation of Graded Action Plan” and thereafter before the Full Court for consideration”, said the office order.

The order said “it has also been ordered that the Courts of Registrars and Joint Registrars of this Court shall not pass any adverse order in non-urgent/routine matters where the concerned advocate/litigant is unable to join the proceedings through video conferencing, till the time the physical functioning of the courts is resumed.”
