KANPUR: The family members of Vikas Dubey, the main accused in the killing of eight police personnel on Friday, are now claiming that Dubey has not been home since the past two days. A woman relative, possibly his sister-in-law, told TV channels that Vikas Dubey had not come home since the past two days and it was the police that fired at the house in the wee hours of Friday.

Two other members of the family who refused to identify themselves, said that 'some people' may have come on their roof during the incident but Vikas was not present. The local villagers, meanwhile, also claimed that they were not present in the village when the firing took place.

Sources said that Dubey owned about half a dozen properties in the village and wielded tremendous clout in the region as well as in the corridors of power.
