'Conspiracy by criminal elements to damage image': Vaibhav Krishna

The SSP Gautam Budh Nagar said, "I myself have studied the video that is viral on social media. It appears that it is a conspiracy by criminal elements to damage my personal image," said Vaibhav Krishna.

"In the last year, I have taken strict action against the organised crime, against those who are involved in illegal activities and extortion. It seems that some of them have hatched a conspiracy," he added. He said that the video went viral on WhatsApp and the "voice of a woman is played in the background while his photograph is seen in the video".

"A case has been registered at Sector 20 Police Station and a request has been made to transfer it out of District to Meerut for a fair investigation," he added.
