Gangster Vikas Dubey's death has once again put the spotlight on the steep rise in encounters in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's tenure.  Dubey was killed in an encounter on July 10 after a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur had met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot in Bhauti area, a senior police official said.

"Dubey was injured in the encounter and he was declared dead in the hospital," ADG Kanpur range JN Singh said.

Since the time Yogi Adityanath came to power in March 2017, the Bharatiya Janata Party and its many supporters have been bestowing fulsome praise for his "handling of crime".
