Chaudhary, allegedly shot Tiwari after the latter refused to stop his car when asked by patrolling personnel.

"The car was never stationary and it was moving. The police had no reason for coming and shouting at us. They may have misunderstood the presence of a lady in the car. It made no sense of what they did and why they did it. My statements have been misrepresented. It wasn't that I felt like a bullet has been fired (as reported by some media) but in reality, a bullet was fired. He had no injury in his head and he was hit on his chin," the eyewitness had earlier stated.
