Uttar Pradesh police also shared a link in which UP police provided full details of what happened on the night of December 3rd. There was also the video byte of the additional Deputy Police Commissioner of the North Zone, Prachi Singh, which gave details of the incident.
The Uttar Pradesh police responded to a tweet from a social media user with the handle @ DharanJeetPand3.

While she was attacking the policeman, Shukla could be heard saying, “Policegiri dikhayega”, loosely translated as (They will show us and tell us what police are).
