After the accident, the police has been now asked why did it take 10 days to record a statement. Reportedly, evidence of Vikram’s blood report is not yet available, and hence his toxication has not yet been proved. Moreover, his counselor claimed that Vikram was not intoxicated and was not even overspeeding when the accident happened. However, he was booked for rash driving and causing death by negligence.
