BHOPALMadhya Pradesh police have finally decided who all will receive a cash reward of Rs 5 Lakh, stated about feared gangster Vikas Dubey from Kanpur, who was killed in a meeting on July 10, one day after his arrest from the Mahakal Temple in Ujjain.
According to reports, Madhya Pradesh police have put the finishing touches and sent the names of six people who will get their share of the reward money to the Director General of Police (DGP).
The list has been finalized based on the recommendation of a three-tier panel to determine who deserves the reward of Rs 5 lakh. The reward was announced by Uttar Pradesh police for the capture of gangster Vikas Dubey.
According to the list, six people, including three policemen from the Madhya Pradesh Police Department, will receive the reward on Vikas Dubey. One of them is Suresh Kanhar, the flower seller who first identified Vikas Dubey.
According to sources, Suresh Kanhar first recognized the gangster entering the temple and alerted the temple security personnel. Names of private guards – Rahul Sharma and Dharmendra Parmar – of the Mahakal temple are also among those who will receive the reward.
Three police officers posted to Mahakal Police Station – Vijay Rathore, Jitendra Kumar and Parshuram – are among the three police officers who will receive the reward money.
MP police had assembled the panel after some initial claimants for the reward said they had no role in the arrest of Dubey, the prime suspect in the murder of eight police officers in Bikru village in Kanpur on July 3.
The committee consisted of the Superintendent of Police (SP), Ujjain City, Rupesh Dwivedi; SP, Ujjain Rural, Amrendra Singh; and an additional SP rank officer.
After Dubey’s arrest, Uttar Pradesh Police Director General HC Awasthy had said the reward money would be sent to the Madhya Pradesh Police Chief to be awarded to those who deserved it.
