Regarding the accident, he said that the condition of the family is not such that they can speak anything. There is no information in this regard about the Congress candidate’s car. The matter will be known only after the family’s statement. It is being told that the car (MP 68 CA 0099) is registered in the name of Singh’s company Purani Infrastructure Private Limited. The car driver was driving. It was not clear who rode in it. Police is investigating Narmada Nagar and Mundi police station.
Former MLA Rajnarayan Singh, father of the Congress candidate, expressed grief over the incident and said – our condolences are with the victim’s family. They learned that an accident occurred near Punasa in our company’s car. After this, when they reached the spot, no one was found there. Information was found that the vehicle from which the accident occurred, the same vehicle has gone to the Mundi police station for the injured. I myself came to the police station to report the accident. I also informed the SP about the matter. The reason for this is that 100 such vehicles can be found, but whose son is gone, he can not come back now. They are residents of Banwara next to my village. I am very pained for this. If you tell one lie, 100 lies have to be told. They have handed over both the car and the driver to the police.
