Hours after the most wanted gangster Vikas Dubey was shot dead in a dramatic encounter with the police forces in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur, a shocking video of a cop in Madhya Pradesh has surfaced on social media, in which the cop can be heard saying: "I hope he (Dubey) doesn't reach Kanpur."

His reaction has raised some important questions about the authenticity of the encounter which has been termed 'staged' and 'faked' by many netizens and the opposition parties in UP.
