The driver began a conversation, as per Kashyap asking him about the bag he was carrying. The driver accused that the bag was made of cow hide, though Kashyap said it was made from camel hide.
The driver asked Kashyap where he hailed from. When Kashyap told him he was from Assam, the driver tauntingly asked him if Assam was near Bangladesh.
Kashyap claimed the driver then insisted the bag smelled of cow skin. Kashyap said that since it had got wet, the bag was giving off the peculiar odour.
A senior officer confirmed, “Our investigations concluded that nothing of that nature took place between Kashyap and the driver. We have booked Kashyap under section 153 (A) of IPC.” The section 153(A) stands for promoting enmity between groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, etc. The section carries a maximum imprisonment of three years or a fine or both.
The Amboli police confirmed that no arrest was made until late on Saturday night.
