HYDERABAD:The hulabaloo surrounding the damaging of car belonging to social activist Sunitha Krishnan on Friday may not be due to uploading of video’s by Krishnan, after all.
Investigation so far indicates that no outsider hurled stones at Krishnan’s car and on the contrary, investigators believe that someone known to the activist has indluged in, what appears to be mischief.
‘’The incident where social activist Sunitha Krishnan’s car was hurled stones at might not involve any outsiders. As perceived earlier, the incident was in no ways related to the activist’s ‘ShameTheRapist campaign or her uploading two rape video clips on YouTube seeking to bring the culprits to book,’’ a police official associated with the probe told Express.
The incident took place on Friday outside Sunitha Krishnan’s office-cum-residence, Prajwala Home, at Hussainalam in the Old City. When contacted, South Zone DCP V Satyanarayana said that no outsider was involved in the incident. He pointed out that investigations suggest only a person familiar with the activist could have done this. ‘’We are still investigating the matter,’’ he said.
Meanwhile, the police questioned a few drivers from the locality including the activists’ driver. They said that they were giving contradictory statements and the investigation was under progress. ‘’We are looking at other possible motives behind the attack to track the culprits,’’ another police official said.
With regard to the video which was uploaded by Sunitha Krishnan, the police official said that neither the victims, accused or the complainant in the video clippings were from Hyderabad and moreover the video was almost six months old.
Following this, the officials of the Central Crime Station of Hyderabad on Saturday sought legal opinion in the case.
