Tevatia's mother and wife, along with dozens of farmers, reached the Noida Phase II court complex before the police. As Tevatia got off the police van, farmers shouted slogans in his support. They claimed he was not a criminal. They said he was fighting for their cause.
"My main concern is his security. Several prisoners, including Dr Sachan, have been killed in UP jails. The Dasna Jail, where my husband is being taken to, is a notorious one. I have requested the court to allow two advocates to keep a watch," said Tevatia's wife Nutan.
His mother Harbiri Devi said, "My son is not a criminal. He is being framed." His advocate Gaurav Kumar said, "We are moving higher courts. We will seek his shifting to a Delhi jail."
