The case was registered on the complaint of Ashutosh Kumar, 28, a resident of Pancham Khera at Rae Bareli Road, who stated that he is a lawyer at the Lucknow bench of Allahabad high court.

“On December 7 evening, I was returning home with my friend on a two-wheeler via VIP road after meeting one of my clients at Krishna Nagar. We had reached Telibagh crossing where Rajbhar’s convoy was passing by. We were parallel to the second vehicle in the fleet when suddenly some men got down from the car and started thrashing me,” stated the complainant.

“I reported the incident on Dial 112, after which a police team arrived and took me to the hospital,” he said, alleging that the men attacked him on the direction of the leader.
