On September 29, Vivek Tiwari, an employee with multinational technology company Apple was shot dead by a policeman in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow. Tiwari’s killing has raised many questions about the UP government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the working of UP Police at large. Though Yogi Adityanath has now agreed to all the requests made by the family, after he recently met Vivek’s wife Kalpana Tiwari and his daughters, it is being viewed as a calculated move to save his face in the upcoming 2019 General Elections. And if we talk about Vivek Tiwari’s killer policeman Prashant Chaudhary, he has been arrested and is being questioned.
Many senior officials tried to build their own stories around Vivek’s murder in order to protect Prashant Chaudhary. However, after much inquiry into the matter, he was sacked. Here are some of the unknown facts about Vivek’s killer Prashant Chaudhary.
As per a report, Prashant Chaudhary and his friend Sandeep would get on the streets in the midnight to find people and charge them. They mostly identified young couples, threatened them and would only leave them after taking money from them.
The night Prashant Chaudhary shot Vivek Tiwari, he had plans of taking money from him too, finding him alone with his co-worker in his car.
As per the locals of Gomtinagar, Prashant used to trouble people every now and then. He would frequently stop trucks passing from Shaheed Path and would take money from them. As per the report, it is also believed that Prashant would handover some money to the higher officials as well.
It is also believed that a few of Prashant’s friends and known ones would used to call him ‘Singham’ and he even dressed up and behaved like Ajay Devgn’s famous character.
Though he is now under custody, if it wouldn’t have been a high profile case, he would have been roaming around freely.
