New Delhi : A police officer, suspended and arrested for his alleged role in passing on crucial information about a raid to nab history-sheeter Vikas Dubey, has moved the Supreme Court seeking protection citing the spate of encounters in which the gangster and his aides were killed.
The plea, filed through his wife Vinita Sirohi, apprehended that her husband Krishn Kumar Sharma may be eliminated through “illegal and unconstitutional means”.
Sub-inspector Sharma, along with three others, was suspended on July 5 for his alleged involvement in passing on information to Dubey about police movement towards his house in Kanpur district to arrest him.
Dubey was killed in an encounter on Friday after a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur allegedly met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot in Bhauti area.
Eight policemen, including DSP Devendra Mishra, were ambushed in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest Dubey and fell to the bullets fired by his men from rooftops shortly after midnight on July 3.
