When he questioned the policemen on what was going on, they allegedly asked him to get off his bike.

Kriti said that after he got off his bike, the police started to assault him and after he fell, one of them shot him on his knee.

“After I was no longer able to get up, one of the policemen said that they should have shot me on my chest”, he added.

He said, “I was not drunk but the policemen were. After I was on the ground, one of them brought some liquor bottles and three them by my side claiming that I was drunk.”

Superintendent of Police Anand Mishra following the incident said that he would investigate the matter by himself.
