2 more Bikru massacre accused booked under NSA

Published

on

Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 6: The Kanpur police have invoked the National Security Act (NSA) against two accused — Jaikant Bajpai and his aide, Prashant Dubey alias Dabbu — in the Bikru massacre case.

Jaikant was the alleged financier of slain gangster Vikas Dubey, who masterminded the Bikru massacre in which eight policemen were killed on July 3, 2020.

Bajpai is accused of providing 25 cartridges of .32 bore revolvers and cash worth Rs 2 lakh to Vikas on July 2 prior to the Bikru ambush.

He had also attempted to help the gangster flee soon after the massacre. All this came to fore during investigation and subsequently, the police had included his name in the Bikru case.

For invoking the NSA, the police had presented the report before the district magistrate (Kanpur).

Superintendent of Police Ashtbhuja Singh told reporters that “After the approval of the district magistrate, a notice of NSA action was served on both of them in jail.”

The police had also stated in its report that Jaikant was aware that Vikas was hatching a big conspiracy against the police but he did not inform the police about it.

The report was prepared by the Chaubeypur police station of Kanpur (Outer) and produced before the district magistrate.

Earlier, NSA action has been taken against three persons in the Bikru case.

The police, on July 1, this year, had invoked NSA against two accused, Bablu Muslim and Ramesh Chandra.

Prior to that, the police had invoked NSA against one Shivam Dubey, an aide and cousin of Vikas who, along with the gangster, was also allegedly involved in gunning down eight policemen.

Under the NSA, a person can be detained without a charge for up to 12 months if the authorities feel he or she is a threat to national security or law and order.

Eight policemen were ambushed by Vikas and his aides in the Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest him on July 3.

Dubey was killed in an encounter in the morning of July 10 when a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot.

Prior to his encounter, five of his alleged associates were killed in separate encounters, while 45 including two policemen and four women were arrested and sent to jail.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
