The Delhi Police on Friday clarified that there was no confusion between them and their counterparts in Meerut over the sequence of events that led to the killing of a Delhi Police head constable in Meerut on May 15 in an apparent case of road rage.
Terming it a "chance incident" in which head constable Sanjeev Malik was shot dead and constable Sanjeev suffered bullet injuries, joint CP (southeast range) Vivek Gogia said the policemen and the attackers did not know each other.
A team of Delhi Police, including Gogia and other senior officers, went to Meerut on Friday and met with their counterparts in Uttar Pradesh Police to discuss the case.
After the meetings, Gogia said the both the police forces were on the same page and there was no confusion regarding the case. There were reports that Meerut Police was not buying Delhi Police's theory that it was a case of road rage.
Asked whether it was a case of road rage, Gogia said he would call it a "chance incident".
Gogia, who met constable Sachin, who is undergoing treatment in a Meerut hospital, said UP STF as well as two teams of Delhi Police are investigating the case.
"The cars came face to face. It was a narrow road. Blood was found inside the car in which our men were travelling as well outside the car," said Gogia.
The policemen were armed with firearms.
The victim policemen had gone to conduct raids near Khatauli of Muzaffarnagar district and were returning to Delhi when they entered into a brawl with some persons in a Santro car over parking.
