Statement of the Victim

Owaisi claimed he was attacked on his way back from a roadshow in Meerut. “I was on the road in Meerut and Kithau. Bullets were fired at my car as I was returning. My car handled to elude capture. I’ve only seen two people. One was dressed in a red hoodie, while the other was dressed in a white jacket. My car’s tyre had a puncture, so I changed cars after about 2-3 kilometres. I spoke with the additional SP, who informed me that one person had been arrested and that weapons had been recovered. My car has three bullet holes in it. The forensic team will investigate, according to the SP.”
