Vikas Dubey (1964 – 10 July 2020) was an Indian history-sheeter, gangster-turned-politician, based in Kanpur Dehat district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The first criminal case against him was registered in the early 1990s, and by 2020 he had over 60 criminal cases against his name. He had been connected to the killing of a Minister of State and in another incident was the main accused in the killing of eight policemen during an attempted arrest. Uttar Pradesh Police declared him an absconder with a bounty of ₹5 lakh before he was finally arrested on 9 July 2020 in Ujjain. He was killed on 10 July 2020 in an encounter, after the vehicle carrying him met with an accident. Media reports state that because of his political connections, Vikas Dubey has been acquitted for most of his murders, despite the presence of multiple witnesses at the scenes.
