Vajpayee alleged that after the court hearing, a group of visitors, including a woman came to meet the accused. He said that they started pointing towards him. Meanwhile, the accused, who are under custody, sought their acquaintances to talk on mobile phones. When Vajpayee opposed this, the accused got agitated and threatened him that they will “see him too”.

Advocate Sushil Kumar immediately informed the police station. Wazirganj and Kaiserbagh police reached the spot and all the accused were sent to court lockup and then sent back to jail. In this whole case, advocate Sushil Kumar has filed a report against unknown people who came to meet the killers in Wazirganj Kotwali. The advocate said that a guard is already in place to protect him.
