The government of Uttar Pradesh, led by Yogi Adityanath, has decided to recommend an investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) into real estate and property worth Rs 147 crore of killed gangster Vikas Dubey.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) made up of Adityanath shortly after the alleged meeting, Dubey recommended an investigation into Dubey’s properties and it was accepted by the Chief Minister.

The three-member SIT, headed by Additional Chief Secretary Sanjay Bhoosreddy, said an in-depth investigation was needed into the gangster’s illegally acquired assets worth Rs 147 crore by the ED, a government spokesman said.

The SIT, in its investigative report presented to the government earlier last month, also said the source of income of all criminals associated with Dubey and his financiers should be investigated.

In the middle of the night of 2-3 July earlier this year, Dubey and his aides fired bullets at the police team, which managed to arrest Dubey in Bikru village of Kanpur, which caused the death of eight men in uniform.

Dubey was found to have previous reports of the attack from his sources at the police station. Dubey was killed days later in an encounter with STF on 10 July being brought from Ujjain to Kanpur.
