UP: Whistleblower surfaces, says Vikas Dubey vowed bloodbath | Kanpur News

KANPUR: Rahul Tewari, whose complaint against Vikas Dubey led to the July 2 & 3 police raid at Bikru, surfaced before the media on Wednesday and revealed that he himself had gone underground for fear of retaliation from the gangster and his henchmen.
Speaking to the media, Rahul provided details of the incidents leading to the ambush. He said after registering his FIR, the police took him to Vikas, who assaulted him mercilessly. “When Vikas put the barrel of his rifle on my chest and was about to pull the trigger, SHO Chaubeypur Vinay Tiwari walked up to the gangster, held his ‘janeu’ (sacred thread) in a gesture of begging, and pleaded: “Panditon pe kalank lag jayega ki ghar bulakar maar diya (It would bring disgrace for Brahmins that they killed a person after calling him to their house),” Rahul said while narrating the July 2 incident.
Rahul further told the reporters that the gangster then asked him and the SHO to consume sacred Ganga Jal and asked them to swear that no action will be taken in the case and from then onwards police will not come to his village. “If the police will come, there will be bloodbath in the village,” he had warned.
Rahul, who lives in Jadepur Nivada village close to Bikru, wanted to dispose of the agricultural land belonging to his in-laws at nearby Mohini Nivada village.
His sisters-in-law (wife’s sisters) opposed the proposed property sale. One of the sisters-in-law, who lives in Bikru, sought the gangster’s intervention to stop Rahul.
According to the police investigation, Rahul was threatened and beaten up publicly by Dubey for putting forth his side on July 1. The next day he gave a written complaint to Vinay Tiwari, the then station officer of Chaubeypur.
Instead of lodging the case, the SHO went to Vikas Dubey at Bikru village on July 2 noon with Rahul, where Rahul Tiwari was again beaten publicly by Vikas and the SHO too was manhandled for trying to pacify the gangster. After this incident, Rahul’s FIR was lodged on the intervention of deputy superintendent of police Dy SP) Devendra Mishra, who was the Bilhaur circle officer, on July 2 evening.
After bringing the matter to the knowledge of his seniors, the CO formed a team comprising 25 policemen, including three police station officers, for a raid on Bikru where the gangster and his men ambushed the police team, killed eight of them and injured five , including a homeguard and a civilian in indiscriminate firing.
