As per the police, Vikas Dubey snatched the gun of the policeman and has opened fire, said the police asserting that they had tried to catch him alive.
The Director-General of UP Police said in an affidavit "Vikas Dubey's killing is not a fake encounter. His case cannot be compared with the Telangana encounter. While Telangana didn't order a judicial commission, the UP government has done so".
