New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Just days before the Kanpur massacre, which had claimed the lives of eight policemen in Bikru village, the slain gangster Vikas Dubey had allegedly threatened a Head Constable of Chaubeypur Police Station, asking him to make sure that a case is not registered against him.

In the purported audio which went viral on social media platforms, he is apparently threatening Rajeev Chaudhary, a Head Constable of Chaubeypur police station, that a case should not be registered against him.

As per the audio, Dubey is angry over a woman approaching the Chaubeypur police station to register a case against him on a land issue. He threatens Chaudhary of committing a big crime, even if he has to spend all his life in jail after that or remain absconding.

Dubey can be heard saying that the a circle officer is on his target whom he vows to kill, even if he has to blow up a police van.

Yeh kaun mahila hai jo mere khilaf mukadma likhwa rahi hai. Farji mukadma likha jaa raha hai... nahin toh mai itna bada kaand karunga ki sab yaad rakhenge ki kis se pala pada hai. Yeh Vikas Dubey ka shikaar hoga, jab tak isko maar nahi lunga tab tak ghar nahi lautunga. (Who is this woman registering a false case against me? I will committ such a crime that everyone will remember who they are dealing with. He will be killed by me. Till the time I kill him, I will not return home),” the gangster is heard saying in the purported audio clip.

Jagran English could not independently verify the authenticity of the viral audio clip. But news agency ANI quoted UP Police sources saying that the audio clip is authentic and is of three-four days before the incident in which eight policemen were killed by Dubey and his men.

Eight policemen, including DSP Devendra Mishra, were ambushed in Bikru village in Chaubeypur area of Kanpur when they were going to arrest Dubey and fell to bullets fired from rooftops shortly after midnight on July 3.

Dubey was killed in an encounter in the morning of July 10 when a police vehicle carrying him from Ujjain to Kanpur met with an accident and he tried to escape from the spot in Bhauti area
