Congress leaders on Saturday carried out a “purification” ritual on the entry gate of Mahakal temple in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain alleging slain gangster Vikas Dubey was made to give up on the campus of the well-known shrine as per a “conspiracy” on Thursday.

Dubey was arrested exterior the temple after buying prasad and an entry ticket to the shrine.

He was killed in an encounter by the UP Police after he tried to flee following a street accident at Barra space in

Kanpur on Friday morning.

A bunch of leaders of the Congress carried out “purification” by chanting mantras and sprinkling Ganga all (water of the Ganga river which is taken into account holy) at “Shankh Dwar” of the temple, stated former minister and MLA Sajjan Singh Verma.

“We carried out purification as a dreaded felony had entered the Mahakaleshwar temple,” he stated.

Nevertheless, it was not clear if Dubey was arrested instantly, earlier than he may enter the temple, or later when he got here out of the temple after performing darshan.

Verma alleged Dubey was made to give up on the campus of the temple below a conspiracy.

“State Residence Minister Narottam Mishra has been making false claims that Vikas Dubey was arrested on the premise of intelligence enter. What was this intelligence doing when Dubey travelled lots of distance in MP earlier than reaching Ujjain…The BJP authorities within the state is defending criminals,” he alleged.

The Congress had on Thursday demanded a high-level probe into Dubey’s “secure exit” from Kanpur and the sequence of

occasions resulting in his arrest in Ujjain.

The infamous felony had been on the run since eight policemen had been killed allegedly by his henchmen once they

tried to raid his home in Kanpur district on July 3.

Reacting to the allegations raised by the Congress, state BJP spokesman Rajneesh Agrawal stated the opposition get together mustn’t drag Mahakal temple into politics.

“Legislation and order state of affairs was very unhealthy when the Congress was in energy within the state. Quite the opposite, legislation and order has been a high precedence of the ruling BJP,” he stated.

Agrawal alleged that mafia cartels thrived every time Congress helmed the state, first below Digvijay Singh and later below Kamal Nath, whose authorities collapsed in March this 12 months.
