According to Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Srivastava, Ashutosh Bhardwaj tampered with the evidence and co-accused Deepak was driving the car. When Bharadwaj was a free man, he misled the investigation of the case. He can mislead again in future. According to sources, the car owner Bharadwaj and Amit’s brother Ankush Khanna had a conversation with the five accused and since Amit did not have a driving license, Deepak was asked to tell the police that he was on the driving seat at the time of the incident. .

The lawyer representing Bhardwaj had sought bail on January 9 on the ground that the offenses are bailable. The accused has cooperated with the police after the incident. Srivastava, however, opposed the plea, saying Bhardwaj had handed over the car involved in the accident to the co-accused, who did not have a driving license.

On January 9, the court had sent the six accused to judicial custody for 14 days. Besides Bharadwaj, the other accused in the case are Deepak Khanna, Amit Khanna, Krishna, Mithun and Manoj Mittal.
