The lead petitioner in the Supreme Court case concerning the extra judicial killing of UP gangster Vikas Dubey has filed a contempt petition against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath contending that he has violated the Court's order by making statements in support of the police encounter.

Petitioner, Ghanshyam Upadhyay had sought an SIT probe into the case.

In the plea seeking the initiation of suo motu contempt proceedings against Yogi Adityanath, Upadhyay has registered objection to certain statements made by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to the media.

"Yogi Adityanath gave an interview/made a statement before media viz. ‘Republic News/TV’ thereby supporting and justifying killing of six accused. The said news article has been published by E-media under the heading ‘YOGI ADITYANATH BREAKS SILENCE ON VIKAS DUBEY ENCOUNTER: GANGSTERS WILL MEET THEIR FATE’."

reads the plea.
