Vikas Dubey

During an attempt to arrest history-sheeter Vikas Dubey, eight policemen were gunned down by criminals. The Uttar Pradesh authorities demolish the terrorist's house in Bithur and his house in Kanpur is also under demolition.

According to reports, Kanpur police used the same JCB to demolish the house of gangster Vikas Dubey that was used to block the road to prevent the police personnel from proceeding towards their hideout.

Not only was the house demolished but the police used the JCB to damage the vehicles parked in Dubey's house.

The twitter users stated that hit where it hurts the most; the gangster's mansion is a good way to start. While some supported the move, there were some who questioned the police's action as they resorted to destroying property by asking, "Under which law".

While some even posted Dubey's reports that appeared in newspapers that he had come forward to help Modi become the PM during the elections.
