Lucknow: After the arrest of gangster Vikas Dubey, wanted in connection with the Kanpur ambush in which eight policemen were killed, in Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain on Thursday, the Uttar Pradesh police said he would be brought to the state on transit remand.

"Dubey will be brought to the state on transit remand. Our campaign against all those involved in the Kanpur case will continue till not even a single member of the Dubey gang is left," ADG, Law and Order Prashant Kumar said.

"Stricter punishment will be ensured against Dubey," he added.


Asked whether anyone else was arrested in Ujjain besides Dubey, the officer said, "We have come to know about it through the media. No official paper has been shared with us yet."

Asked whether it was a joint operation of the Madhya Pradesh police and Uttar Pradesh police, he said, "No, our team was not there."

Quizzed on how the dreaded gangster managed to reach Ujjain, Kumar said it would not be possible to throw light on that, adding that "it will be part of the probe".
