Earlier in the day, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh told Republic that the driver of the vehicle will take the responsibility. “Karan Bhushan Singh's vehicle was 3 km away from the car that killed two persons. Those kids fought with a woman and later their car lost balance, hitting two persons. The incident is painful and shouldn't have happened. The driver will take the responsibility,” Brij Bhushan told Republic. Karan, 30-year-old, has been fielded by the BJP from his father’s seat, which went to the polls in the fifth phase of Lok Sabha election on May 20. 

Karan Bhushan Responds to Charges 

In first reaction, Karan Bhushan dodged the charges of hit and run case and said, “This was an accident. I was going to Bahraich with four cars and the incident occurred with the cars that were behind me. One woman was crossing the road and to save her, the bikers swerved and were hit by the car.” 

"This is an extremely unfortunate incident. We are doing everything that we can do for the family," the Kaiserganj BJP candidate added.
