LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh additional chief secretary Sanjay Bhoosreddy, who is heading the special investigation team probing the local police’s alleged connivance with slain gangster Vikas Dubey, will on Sunday visit Bikru village near Kanpur where 8 policemen were killed by the henchmen of the gangster.

The team has been asked to probe into what effective action was taken in all the cases lodged against Dubey, the statement said.
The SIT will also probe what action was taken to cancel the bail of “such a dreaded criminal”, what action has been taken against him under the Goonda Act, the National Security Act, Gangsters Act, and if there was any laxity and at what level, it added.
