The Uttar Pradesh government, led by Yogi Adityanath, has decided to recommend an investigation by the Law Enforcement Directorate (ED) into the property and assets worth 147 million rupees of the murdered gangster Vikas Dubey.

A special investigation team (SIT) set up by Adityanath shortly after the alleged meeting Dubey recommended an investigation into Dubey’s properties and was accepted by the chief minister.

The three-member SIT, led by Deputy Chief Secretary Sanjay Bhoosreddy, said a thorough investigation into the 147m-euro illegally acquired gangster assets by the ED was needed, a government spokesman said.

SIT, in its investigation report sent to the government at the beginning of last month, also said that the source of income of all the criminals associated with Dubey and its financiers should be investigated.

In the middle of the night, July 2-3, earlier this year, Dubey and his assistants fired bullets at the police team that had arrested Dubey in Kanpur village of Bikru, killing eight men in uniform. .

Dubey was found to have prior information about the raid from his sources in the police department. Dubey was killed days later in a meeting with the STF on July 10, while being brought from Ujjain to Kanpur.
