However, Ajay Mishra Teni said that he was not aware of how the incident happened. He stated: “Based on information and video, it's visible that driver was killed after being pulled out of car. If it were my son, he'd have been dead. It's impossible to get out of a place where car ran over people amid gathering of thousands."
The minister added: “We have evidence to prove that neither I nor my son were present at spot. We are ready to face any investigating agency. Culprits, who have planned this incident won't be spared."
