Stung Investigative Officer Anil Kumar Rathore denied having any picture of the brat Sanidhya Garg who killed one CRPF jawan and injured two other officers after he rammed his Mercedes in their hatchback on Thursday night. Saying that the accused has a lawyer and is from a big family, the cops refused to present any picture of the brat.
"The accused already has a lawyer. I don't have any picture of the accused."
He said that since the family of the accused is a very influential family, own a permanent house and have all the required documents verified, he did not have the picture of the brat who rammed the vehicles of the CRPF jawans. On being questioned over a CCTV camera installed in the area where the incident took place, the investigative officer clearly denied saying that the camera does not function.
"It doesn't function. It functioned for a while when it was installed but it doesn't work anymore," Anil Kumar Rathore said.
