New Delhi: Even Bollywood could not have come up with a thriller, the hunt for gangster Vikas Dubey and his eventual arrest proved to be. A week after eight policemen were gunned down by his gang while attempting to arrest Dubey just outside Kanpur, the wanted criminal was finally caught in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh Thursday.

MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan congratulated the Ujjain Police for the arrest.

However, Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Uttam Patel and journalist Uma Shankar Singh wonder whether the arrests was actually a surrender.

In the light of these allegations, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav wants some answers.
