Kanpur : 8 Policemen killed in an attack by goons

  • If the Police cannot protect themselves from hooligans, we must investigate the quality of their training !
  • Why the Police force is not fully prepared to apprehend the criminals ? It should be made public how the thugs could overpower the Police force.
  • Terrorists, Naxalites and now criminals are killing the Policemen. It is a big stigma on our Police force. If the Police are insecure themselves, what will be the state of common people ?

Kanpur (UP) – A gang of thugs attacked the Police team killing an ACP and 7 Policemen. Another 7 Police constables were injured in the attack. The Police force went to Kanpur to apprehend the gang.

IG of UP Police S.C. Avasthi informed about the incident, “Vikas Dubey was charged with attempted murder just a few days back. The Police team went to Bikaru village in the Chaubepur Police station area to arrest Vikas Dubey. A JCB blocked the entry-road of the village, preventing the passage of Police vehicles.

When the Police team got down from vehicles, the gang was waiting and opened fire. The Police force responded with return fire, but the criminals were hiding atop a hill and had an advantage. They were able to kill the Policemen”. Devendra Kumar Mishra, Mahesh Yadav, Anup Kumar, Nebulal, Sultan Singh, Rahul, Jitendra, and Bablu are the names of Policemen killed in the attack. CPRF jawans were deployed at the site. We are monitoring the situation with drones.
