Agra (UP), Aug 31: A wanted criminal carrying a reward of Rs 75,000, was shot dead in an encounter with Agra police after he escaped from custody.

Mukesh Thakur, 44, who hailed from Rajasthan’s Baseri, snatched a revolver from a policeman. He was being taken to his accomplice’s house to recover weapons when the encounter took place.

Police said 40 criminal cases, including murder, kidnapping for ransom and robbery are registered against him at various police stations in UP and Rajasthan.

In February this year, the then IG (Agra range) had declared Rs 50,000 for his arrest and Rs 25,000 was declared by the Rajasthan police.

Thakur had looted a petrol pump in Agra’s Iradat Nagar earlier this year.

Inspector general of police (Agra range) Naveen Arora said that the police had received a tip-off that Thakur was planning to commit a crime in Agra.

A police team of SOG and surveillance were keeping a tab on his movement through electronic surveillance.

Thakur was arrested on Sunday afternoon while travelling on a bike with an accomplice, Jitendra, on Rohta road. The duo was taken to Sadar police station.

During interrogation, Thakur revealed that he was planning a murder and was going to his accomplice’s house to collect weapons.

On Monday, Thakur was being taken to his accomplice’s house to collect the weapons when he pushed one policeman in the vehicle, snatched the service revolver and escaped.

At least 12 police personnel in two vehicles were escorting him when he fled.

Immediately the news was flashed and teams were formed to nab him. A police team surrounded Thakur but he opened fire in a bid to escape. He was injured in retaliatory firing by the police.

Thakur was then taken to SN Medical College for treatment but doctors declared him brought dead.

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

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.
