However, he could not say how he travelled to India from Russia when international flights were suspended due to the pandemic.

The policemen informed Anjali, sister-in-law of Vikas Dubey and she came and escorted Akash into the house.

“We could hear loud wails from inside the house when Akash went in. A family member later said that he clung to his mother and grandmother and cried bitterly,” sources said.

Meanwhile, sources said that Akash’s mother Richa has sent Akash away to a friend’s place on July 3 itself when the police massacre took place.

“She did not want the boy’s career to be jeopardized in the police action that followed. It was only after the police gave a clean chit to Richa on July 10 that she allowed him to return,” the source said.
