Ghaziabad: In a twist in the case, the Ghaziabad Police on (Wednesday) November 8 issued a statement saying that the allegations made by popular poet and author Kumar Vishwas that his convoy was attacked have not been proven in the initial investigations. Kumar Vishwas on Wednesday filed a complaint alleging that his vehicle was hit by a car of an unidentified person who also "attacked" CRPF and police personnel deployed for his security, police said.
"In the case that came to notice today, the allegations regarding the attack on the convoy of Mr Kumar Vishwas by an unknown person have not been proved in the course of preliminary investigation. In the course of advance investigation, action is being taken by the Indirapuram police station," said the police statement.
The statement by the police now puts focus on the statement by one Dr Pallav Bajpai, who had alleged that his vehicle was hit and the security personnel of Kumar Vishwas attacked him. The doctor also has visible injuries, as can be seen in the video. Dr Pallav Bajpai had approached Indirapuram police.
The incident had occurred near Hindon Bridge in the afternoon of Wednesday (November 8), police said.
"We are looking into both the complaints and initiated preliminary investigations. Further action will be taken on the basis of the findings of this investigation," the ACP was quoted saying by news agency ANI.
